No, and it wouldn't do what you want anyway, because roles are global
objects spanning all databases.  You can't guarantee that your event
trigger is installed in all of them, and even if you could, there's
nothing particularly useful you can do if you are in database A and
get told that a role is going away, and the stuff you care about
fixing up is in database B.
