Assigns roles (named $role-names) to be the set of included roles for the role ($role-name). Removes previously assigned roles.

If a role with name equal to $role-name is not found, an error is returned.

If a role name in $role-names does not correspond to an existing role, an error is returned.

If $role-names is the empty sequence, all included roles for the role are removed.

If the current user is limited to granting only his/her roles, and $role-names is not a subset of the current user's roles, then an error is returned.
