Is it possible to limit the sitecore\Sitecore Client Account Managing role?

Our client has a team that manages security accounts on their site and they are requesting a "limited" sitecore\Sitecore Client Account Managing role that would limit the user to managing roles only (i.e. not access rights), and if possible only certain roles.

If this isn't possible, we can create a custom admin tool for this. I'd just rather support the built in GUIs than my own, if possible.

You can do this by changing the security on the application in the core database. The Role Manager located here: /sitecore/content/Applications/Security/Role Manager. The default security on it has /sitecore/content/Applications/Security/Role Manager with read permission:

enter image description here

You could add a new role that only has read permissions for this application and not any of the other security applications, or you could remove read access from the Sitecore Client Account Managing role.

As for only managing certain roles, that would have to be done via a custom application, there is nothing out of the box that will do that AFAIK.
