No. I need other information from the context, such as whether a user is
even logged in, the user's roles, and session information, among other things.

It's much more complex to set up and change a mock object, and have to worry
about whether it's set up correctly, than to log in as a particular user and
do actions that the user would normally do, and test how that affects the
user's access permissions.
