> Role names can be easily misconfigured resulting in security holes.  However app developers
typically known which roles are available in their environment.  A small tweak to RolesInterceptor
could make it easy for developers to have role verification.  When the roles are invalid the
RolesInterceptor could fail-fast, quickly bringing the issue to attention.
