 Hi imath

 I took a look at your patch and have some feedback on what you're starting
 to put in place.

 Even though the ticket is specifically designed to improve the management
 of signups from a site admin back-end point of view, I think functions
 that you've introduced such as {{{check_user_status}}} pave the way for a
 far more friendly front-end registration process.

 For instance, if a user with {{{user_status == 2}}} were able to sign in
 before activating their account - {{{check_user_status}}} could be used to
 disable important functionality such as compose messages, update profile,
 activity comment etc whilst still allowing them to browse around as a
 logged in member. I've found the requirement to visit their email account
 and click the activation link before they can log in is off-putting for a
 subset of users - almost like closing the door in their face. Giving them
 a 'logged-in glimpse' of what they can do on the website might motivate
 more users to visit their email and hit the activation link.

 Apologies if this went slightly off-topic but reading through your patch
 gave me the idea.
