When to make Site Admin and Admin - Role vs Group

There's a performance penalty when using roles, which is not there when you use the corresponding groups. If e.g. you add the 'Administrator' role to a user sitewide, all objects in your site will be reinidexed recursively. Multiple times even. If you add that user to the 'Administrators' group no such reindexing takes place while the outcome (i.e. access controls) is the same.
