XF 1.5 Allow Specified User to Manage Users w/o Administrator Privs

#1
Hello,

I have a reasonably sized gaming community and I want to task a few trusted members with managing applications and all of the associated user group changes that entails (from Registered to Trial Member, then to Member or back to Registered, etc). Problem is that the only way I see to grant this is to add them to the Administrators list with "Manage users and moderators" permissions, the repercussions of which are that were they so inclined they could grant themselves full rights to view/moderate/administer the board where I otherwise might not want them accessing.

Is there a better way to do this?

Only administrators can manage users and the permission is fairly broad.

It would require an add-on to change that (if one exists), otherwise custom development.
