 It appears that whatever solution is approached would have to be one that
 is quite simple and would need to have the ability to link capabilities to
 both roles and users, as well as roles to users.

 I think the general meta-data table should be in !WordPress, but these
 people seem to have the goal in sight and after some contemplate, I agree.
