I'm fine with data driving the custom user stuff..l
I would still say, though, you'd want real columns in the GL2 user table
for thing we know we need (i.e. username, password, etc) for performance
reasons alone, right? Regardless, going this route will make the use of
Propel a little bit messy as the user class generated by propel won't
know anything about the custom attributes in the database.
Also, for clarity, are you suggesting we do this for all plugin specific
user attributes? I don't think you are and if you are we probably want
to discuss the pros/cons between that and having a plugins specific user
table with a one-to-one relationship with the kernel user table.
