Just curious if this experiment ever happened. I am about to do basically exactly this and looking to re-use what i can.
The web.config change was pretty easy but now would like to see what anyone has done with the implementation of the Role Provide class.
<roleManager enabled="true" defaultProvider="OrchardRoleProvider">
<add name="OrchardRoleProvider" type="Orchard.Security.Providers.OrchardRoleProvider" />
