I'm not sure this makes sense. If I protect isMember, then anonymous won't
be able to determine if they're a member without being prompted to log in.
Isn't that true? That's not what I want.
Also, why does it behave differently after I view a protected document in
the root? isMember is still not protected, but it then correctly returns
that I have the Member role anywhere in the site.
