i don't understand what you mean by overloading the user folder w/ "all
kinds of APIs".  i'm not proposing any additions to the user
folder at all. i'm talking about a custom user class, along w/ custom user
factory, authentication, and user property decoration plugins that move
the behaviour that is currently in the member object down into the user
object.  no additional features, less complexity, more flexibility.
