Frankly, it seems that neither of them can fully support roles hierarchy

complicated approach how to do that)

We've been discussing this from a different point of view with Michal today: The low-level-perms (on path) make it impossible to configure dynamically created sysconfig files for network (/etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-*), whereas the high-level-perms (Network Admin) don't care about specific files (but YLib has to take care about security itself).
