You're right, I think I've been overcomplicating it.  I wanted to solve 
the problem with just the cookie crumbler, without resorting to using 
skin components like 'logged_in'.  It feels like the roles lookup should 
occur as part of the cookiecrumbler software, not as part of the 
presentation layer.  There are some edge cases like where a manager has 
logged in via the ZMI and then visits the site.  But in fact, when I 
think about it, I don't really see that it matters that much ;-)
