As a user wishing to manage roles and users, I cannot easily remove a role.

Description

This issues manifests itself in two forms:

1. If I have Role A, being used by User B and I attempt to delete Role A, I am presented with an error message "Role is still in use".
2. If I have Role A being used by 25 users, and I wish to delete Role A, I must find every user using Role A, remove the Role from each individual user and then delete the role.

Just for the record, users could be search by role using filter "role = $name" but that is also inconvenient

We have had this problem with Organizations/Locations too, where removing them is a real PITA (find all objects associated), Environments, and proxies... If we can have a 'generic' approach to this operation that we can apply with any object that deleting it leaves orphans that have to be fixed, that'd be great

@Daniel, I think that this use-case is a whole lot different than with Organizations / Locations.
With Role, it is a simple delete, which removes the user_roles association, and does not leave an orphan
