#34655 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Allow pre-filtering of role changes on WP_User

It would be useful to have pre-filters for WP_User::set_role() and friends, so a plugin could monitor or block certain roles from being applied.

For example, on multisite, it may be desirable to prevent roles from being changed on certain blogs.

34655.2.diff refreshes the patch to apply cleanly against trunk, makes some coding style tweaks.

In set_role(), it's possible to send an empty role, which will cause all user roles to be removed. This existing behaviour is incompatible with the short-circuit behaviour we're after.
