When creating a new user as an admin, it is useful and even expected to
be able to complete all the profile fields which are available on the
usual registration form ... the approach might be to consolidate
registration so that both users and admins use a single form.

At first I thought it'd be better if I'd keep the separate form, but
this version results in shorter code and it's not so ugly. However, if
you do not like it, I have the version which only adds the $extra to

I like this patch.

to me, this version is great as it unifies the registration code. i did
a code review and all looks good to me. i applied the patch and noticed

- i added a required checkbox field via profile.module. the check
appeared on the reg form without the 'required' marker and the
registration was accepted without checking the box. then i tried this
for a textfield and it properly showed the 'required' marker but it
didn't enforce the 'required' bit either. so then i tried to edit the
user and even then we seem not to be enforcing the 'required' bit. this
looks like a profile.module bug.

if you are up for it, you might want to investigate the above. but
truly, enforcing the required bit is not related to this patch. so +1
from me.

It was intentional that the check for required fields are skipped for
admins. I deleted that check.

This patch is massively useful (at least for me...) and was exactly what
I was looking for.

Since I can't use the CVS version, I back-ported it to 4.6.2.  It's
syntactically valid, and it seems to work, although I have not tested
it thoroughly.  I'm uploading it in case anyone else wants to try it
out, or is willing to test it.   I'll be using it in any case.

YMMV, of course :-)
