Yeah, thats what im doing at the moment... i have my roles defined in an
enum, and as additional members of the enum i have my combined roles, then i
check those names (i use System.Enum.GetName() to define my role names). Eg.
Enum UserRoles
    Employee = 2
    Administrator = 4
    AdminEmployee = Employee Or Administrator
End Enum

Then in my allow role i add AdminEmployee.

I just thought maybe there was a way to do this without creating combinatory
values like that.
