    Role based authentication, possible?

    Is it possible to imagine an extension or plugin to LMS that would include the notion of roles (owner/manager-DJ/audience) and use that to limit actions on the "server" (eg setting prefs) and on "players" (eg clear playlist)?

    Basically I think this is an extension of iPeng's "party mode".

    Assuming it makes sense, how big a job would that be?

    This would be a lot of work, not feasible as a plugin.
