      Description

      For a long time we've been talking about stripping the user table down to the essentials and converting some of the existing fields into "custom user profile fields" so that admins have more flexibility about allowing/displaying them.

      The problem is that so many things already expect to find this info into user table, and it is returned with many queries that return users, so it needs to be implemented carefully.

      This bug details this process, starting with the easy.
