#8618: Improve member type support on registration screen.

 There are a couple of cool things in the member types code that would be
 great to employ on the registration page:

 * Make it easy to add a "select member type" radio/checkbox fieldset to
 the sign-up form and/or the user-facing profile edit form. I can imagine
 there being a need for a member type select that the user can change at
 any time and a version that can only be set once, like on the sign-up
 screen. I'm not sure if this would be an xprofile field or a setting
 somewhere else.

 * Make the extended profile form on the sign-up screen responsive to
 selections made in the "member type" selector.

 At the moment, it's possible to create a new extended profile field,
 associate it with one or more member types, assign it to the sign-up field
 group, and mark it required, though these fields are only rendered on the
 profile edit screen (both front and back-end).

 Some portion of this work could be delegated to a plugin, but it seems
 like, at the least, adding a member type selector to the registration form
 should be made simpler.
