Tiered Admin Permissions

Hey all,

I think it would be a great feature to introduce different types of administrative account rights into Openfire if possible.
Granting an account administrative privileges currently gives that account the rights to make any server changes. Maybe create a “super” admin which has all the current privileges, and maybe a “help desk” type admin that only has permissions to create/modify/delete user accounts and rooms. Creating a lower tiered administrative account can stop someone not too familiar with how the server is set up from accidentally changing some system breaking properties, from curiosity or whatever the cause may be, that needs access to do simpler administrative tasks.

This is sort of covered by OF-622, but I know of nobody efforting this. It would be a major undertaking.
