Note to anyone interested: the new RBAC system that landed in upstream
trunk for FusionForge is already going to allow that (a project admin
can grant permissions to roles from other projects, not only to those
roles defined in their project). What's missing is some UI to actually
do that, and some stabilisation of the whole trunk so we can reach a
releasable state and upgrade Alioth to it.
