[wp-hackers] Editing Custom Post Type's Custom Taxonomy with a custom Role

On a local mailing list, someone asked about managing capabilities for a
custom post type with a custom taxonomy. I thought it would be nice to blog
an example of that, adding in a custom role. The aim is to allow a Person to
edit People and their Professions (and nothing else).


I got a little confused, trying to fiddle with the capabilities, so
apologies if there is a glaring mistake that fixes my issue.

Currently my Person can read/edit/quickedit/publish/delete their own and
other's Peoples. The Person can add/delete/quickedit taxonomies, but cannot
*edit* them. That is the URI
with the error 'Cheatin’ uh?' on Update.

WordPress 3.2.1
Theme: twentyten child theme (so I can play in functions.php).
Plugins: capsman, debug-bar, debug-bar-extender
