I think you've found out why local roles don't work. Congratulations on
a successful code hunting mission :-)
I don't know for sure, but I think the API for returning a list of users
has been omitted intentionally. A LoginManager instance might "contain"
(or rather, provide authentication to) thousands of users. Listing all
of these would arguably break the management interface.
Perhaps what LoginManager (or Membership) needs is a way of stating, for
each user, whether they should appear in the local-roles list. This
could be a checkbox for each user, or it could be a method that gets
called to specify the users that appear, for example, using a regular
expression, or perhaps based on some quality of the user object.
You should still be able to use local roles, even now, by using an
external method to add local roles where you need them, and explicitly
give the user id. You just can't select from the management interface.
