[PVE-User] Question about defining Proxmox ACLs with Ansible

Hi guys,

I have a quick question regarding people's preferences when defining
ACLs. Right now, I have a feature branch open to define them in the
following manner:

  - path: /
    roles: [ "Administrator" ]
    groups: [ "Admins" ]
  - path: /pools/testpool
    roles: [ "PVEAdmin" ]
      - pveapi at pve
      - test_users

Since /access/acl (how you would add ACLs to Proxmox using the API)
accepts multiple values for roles, groups and users, I figured I'd
accept a list for all of them, but this feels a bit clunky to me. The
ACLs themselves are stored on a per-user/per-group/per-role basis
internally within Proxmox, too. Does anyone who might consider using
this Ansible role prefer to define ACLs differently from what I
currently have? e.g. instead of the above:

  - path: /
    role: Administrator
    group: Admins
  - path: /pools/testpool
    role: PVEAdmin
    user: pveapi at pve
  - path: /pools/testpool
    role: PVEAdmin
    group: test_users

I'd appreciate anyone's thoughts on this - I'm looking to release this
