[wp-hackers] Assigning capabilities to Appearance submenu items

Long time lurker, but first time poster. I've searched Google  
extensively and just can't seem to come up with an answer on this  

I use Justin Tadlock's excellent 'Members' plugin for roles and  
permissions on several client installations of WP. I've recently  
deployed a theme where the client should only have access to the  
Appearance -> Menus item, but none of the others sub-items in the  
Appearance menu of the admin.

When enabled, the role 'edit_theme_options' enables the user to access  
'Themes', 'Widgets', and 'Menus'. How would I go about filtering the  
submenu so that if the role 'edit_custom_menus' is assigned, the  
'Menus' link will show?
