Thanks Antonio - and yes, I use adminrole.module on all of my sites too -
another "brand" module in my view. Does anyone know if adminrole.module and
masquerade.module are integrated? Or whether such integration is

I'm thinking specifically of masquerade.module + (security patch)
integrating with adminrole.module, to provide a one-click solution to the
problem I originally described.
