      Description

      If we revive this pre-roles setting, we can hack things to give all people an automatic role on the site course.

      (Something like the defaultuserroleid, it would be a new defaultfrontpageroleid)

      The login process would add this automatically to in the capabilities cached structure, and some of accesslib needs to be hacked (like get_users_by_capability) to check for this and return ALL users in this case.

      Yu, can you identify a list of areas that would need to be hacked for this solution and possibly produce a patch here?
