Description

Hello,

While working with roles I found it odd that you can add a Display Name for a role but the WP_Role class and the WP_Roles function get_role don't provide this information.

Please add $display_name as a public attribute of WP_Role so it's available on that object and would be returned in the get_role function.

Thank you P.S. Currently to access this information you have to use the WP_Roles as follows;

<?php
$wp_roles->roles[$role]['name'];
