If you are _already_ administering an existing setup, or have a custom
automated deployment of a service, probably not much.  When you need to
deploy a new service, the roles should save you work because a lot of the
"custom" work is really common to most deployments and shouldn't need to be
custom; or if you were new to Linux system administration, the roles should
simplify everything (but not make it impossible to deal with the details).
