question about "assign to first member of role"

There is no defined sequence for roles in datetime order. As a workaround I would propose to create a separate role with one member and add first member to that role.

Then what is the purpose of the script for "assign to the first member of the <x> role"? I was under the impression that it used the first name listed in the role (speaking in terms of order of names, not datetime of the names addition to the role).
