I'm looking for an authenticated system with namespaces and subdomains
I want to make:,, etc
Every admin can have different roles, f.i. admin_a can list users,
admin_b can list, add and update, admin_c can list, add/update and
delete users.

I have studied Typo and Mephisto, but both of them doesn't use
subdomains and namespaces. They have so complex routing files....
Actually I have lost in them.

Could you suggest a ready-to-use solution for this task?

restful authentication (check out the bells and whistles version
role requirement (part of the above)

I don't think you'll find it out of the box, but with some minor
hacking it should be possible to get what you want ...
