Hi Eric,
I'd suggest you post your entire proposal on this mailing list before  
applying, That'll allow for you to take on board other peoples suggestions  
as well as a learning experience of what else is out there and available  

I know there are a lot of people wanting a improved role system, and i'm  
aware of 2 (possibly 3) people who'll write something soon if nothing  
comes to fruition..

In the past, i believe posting here was one of the prerequisites, just to  
ensure that your final application is as good as it can be.
