An overlooked feature of Catalyst is the ability to modify actions via
the configuration:

package MyRole::Login;
use Moose::Role;

sub login { etc... }

package MyApp::Controller::Login;
use Moose;
with 'MyRole::Login';

__PACKAGE__->config(action => { login => { PathPart => 'sign-in' } } );

package MyOtherApp::Controller::Login;
use Moose;
with 'MyRole::Login';

__PACKAGE__->config(action => { login => { PathPart => 'log-in } } );

note that you can use any key that you would use as an action attribute,
including chainining, and catalyst automatically promotes the method to
an action due to the existence of the config.
