Any updates on comitting this?  I didn't think to check back because
this seemed like the original intent of the PROFILE_HIDDEN patch in the
first place, to make certain fields non-editable for users.

Here are some updates to the PROFILE_HIDDEN functionality.

Basically now if you have 'administer users' access, you can edit these
fields and they show up for you in the user's profile when editing.

If you don't then they don't show up for editing at all.  They still
should show up when simply viewing though.

Not sure about this patch.  I'll give it some thought/testing.

I am not sure the current implementation is too usefull. What about if I
want to add fields that users can neither see nor edit (like the roles)?

Having this feature would be helpful to me. But there are some
properties I would like to completely hide and some that would be
unnecessary to show the user.

This is useful functionality. I have deployed drupal into a few
corproations and they often have profile fields like 'title' and
'telephone number' and 'department'. thos fields should be editable
only by administrators. thats what this patch allows, if i'm not
