    Some users. This is one of those things that gets kicked by the 80/20 ideal, which is any feature added to WP should be needed by 80% of the users. This? Is best served as a plugin right now, as it doesn't.

    I think this is one of those things that most folks don't realize they could need, until it'd put right in front of them. Then, they're all over it like stink on a skunk.

    The reason there are probably so many plugins trying to do this is that a lot of folks need or want it, and they keep trying to make it work. I've tried several plugins and most of them are awful and not maintained.

    It certainly seems a lot more useful than being able to change the color of the admin bar. Which, I am sure was really in demand in the "olden days," when WP was almost exclusively a blogging engine, and had not started it's CMS growth spurt.

    Heh. You know we're working on removing fields from the profiles, as it happens.

    And depending on which fields you want to add, it can be pretty easy.
