[Zope3-Users] Using zope.security Outside Zope

I'd like to know if it is feasible to use zope.security outside of the 
complete Zope 3 environment?

I've been playing with the sandbox examples, reading the README and source 
code and interfaces, but I'm still wrapping my brain around all the 
different concepts.
(I'm quite new to OO programming, so I'm probably taking longer than I 
should to grasp what's happening in the code)

I have a relatively simple security model that I need to implement. 
There's basically 3 roles (normal user, superviser, manager) with 
different permissions. 
I need to assign each user one or more roles, and then assign 
custom functionality (from my point of sale app) to each role.
I should also be able to present a user with a menu consisting only of 
functionality that he/she has access to.

My user interface for this app will be QT.
