Ahhh, the purpose of that might be useful only for the site we're
building.  Basically there's a protected section of the site that
requires some information that the user doesn't have to fill in right
away when they first register.  When they try to access this section, we
pop up a form for the to fill in additional information.  What we're
actually doing there, is setting the user *back* to the original user,
and not LoggingInUser, so that they can fill out the form and change
their information, at which point they'll get the role required to
access the site.
