[Catalyst] Customizing Authentication/Roles

As I start laying out the framework for Mango, one of the things I want
to do is use roles on a virtual 'per site' basis; within the same cat app.

From a table standpoint, that is roughly:

        id, name

        id, username, password

        id, site_id, name

        site_id, user_id, role_id

When a user logs in, they may have different roles for different sites.
Maybe they're an admin for one site, but only a publisher for another.
Two sites maybe have the same role name, which means the stock ROles
stuffs in Auth isn't going to cut it.

I want to reuse as much of what exists as possible from Auth/Roles, but
I haven't a clue on what direction to start making changes.

Any ideas on how you would do this?
