well, if all the user folders are configured the same way *except* for the 
groups-to-role bit then you should get the functionality you need.

it's not trivial to program something that would allow retrieval of a user 
object at the root and then somehow mangle the list of roles based on where 
you are in the site.

you might be able to patch the folder class so that local roles are 
computed instead of just looked up, but that's hackish.
