Custom highlighting for certain user-role comments
It would be handy to differentiate between member and contributor comments by giving them a slighly highlighted background.

I do love the gravatar feature; it's a great improvement.
I still think it would be a really nice addition to enable custom background-color highlighting for roles.
I can imagine this being an option in the roles & permissions screen, where you would be able to give each role an optional color to represent it.
Alternatively, I think it would be a great idea to at least highlight the assigned user's comments.

How would it work if the user has multiple Roles?
Good question; I had not thought about that one yet.
The most simple way would be to use the sort-order on the permissions; in most cases, sorting is done top-down (Manager --> lower roles) instead of the other way around, so in most cases, this would work fine. If this sort order is not being used, there is a small loophole in the system though.
Even so, the background color for a privilege should be optional, making any role that should stand out automatically visually distinctive from the others, no matter what the color.
