Adding new role for Seraph custom path

Sorry for the noob question, but I am just now discovering Seraph as it is used in Confluence.

I would like to add a role in the seraph-paths.xml file to map it to a path. The only two roles used in the default seraph-path.xml file are constants defined by the ConfluenceRoleMapper class:

<path name="adminJspPath">
        <url-pattern>/admin/*.jsp</url-pattern>
        <role-name>admin_jsp_role</role-name>
    </path>
    <path name="admin">
        <url-pattern>/admin/*</url-pattern>
<!-- CONFLUENCE_ADMIN_ROLE -->
        <role-name>confluenceadmin_seraph_role</role-name>
    </path>

Is it possible to add another role? For example, a Crowd or Confluence role?

Looks like any Crowd group is allowed as a value for the role-name. Sweet!
