The registration tool won't be present either, on sites which do not
allow through-the-web registration.  If we consider the memberdata tool
to be a private detail of the membership tool, then we must extend the
contract of the membership tool (*not* the registration tool) to allow
setting properties (getting them is already done by the member object
fetched via 'wrapUser').

My bad, too, probably.  The registration tool originally had two almost
unrelated responsibilities.
