Hm... it looks like you can specify only one role per connection.
So you can't use roles the way I understood... I thought roles
were just a 'bunch of permissions' that can be granted to a user.
That means a user only 'belongs to' one role at a time and
has to reconnect to use the rights he/she might have with another role?
And how do you know which roles the user belongs to before
you connect to the database? Let's say the admin granted you
new permissions on a table via a role, but didn't tell you.

Sorry, but I don't think I got the idea behind roles right.
