[wp-hackers] Shared Users Table

All the blogs are new and up to date. I'm using the CUSTOM_USER_TABLE
&& CUSTOM_USER_META_TABLE constants to point to the right tables. So
that much is working. However when users register to comment... I
have to manually give them subscriber role on all the other blogs.
Its this last part I'd like to 'fix'. Giving everyone subscriber role
on all blogs.... and do it in a way that doesn't keep me from
upgrading wordpress when updates arrive.
