cRankManager class

Manages the players' permissions. The players are assigned a single rank, which contains groups of permissions and restrictions. The functions in this class query or modify these.

All the functions are static, call them using the cRankManager:Function() convention.

The players are identified by their UUID, to support player renaming.

The rank also contains specific "mesage visuals" - bits that are used for formatting messages from the players. There's a message prefix, which is put in front of every message the player sends, and the message suffix that is appended to each message. There's also a PlayerNameColorCode, which holds the color that is used for the player's name in the messages.

Each rank can contain any number of permission groups. These groups allow for an easier setup of the permissions - you can share groups among ranks, so the usual approach is to group similar permissions together and add that group to any rank that should use those permissions.

Permissions are added to individual groups. Each group can support unlimited permissions. Note that adding a permission to a group will make the permission available to all the ranks that contain that permission group.

One rank is reserved as the Default rank. All players that don't have an explicit rank assigned to them will behave as if assigned to this rank. The default rank can be changed to any other rank at any time. Note that the default rank cannot be removed from the RankManager - RemoveRank() will change the default rank to the replacement rank, if specified, and fail if no replacement rank is specified. Renaming the default rank using RenameRank() will change the default rank to the new name.
