It seems like a shortcut method to implementing this would be to create an
authentication interface that would switches to a role-based theme for each
authenticated user. This way, you could simply modify the UI through XML for
each set of users without getting into anything complex like ACLs for UI

One approach would be to extend the existing theme structure through the
of a shallow hierarchy of directories in each theme's directory, perhaps
something like the following:


Using a model like this, it would be fairly easy to create a set of tools
for defining and managing roles automatically based upon existing themes.
