+A registration profile model and associated manager.
+The RegistrationProfile model and especially its custom manager
+implement nearly all the logic needed to handle user registration
+and account activation, so before implementing something in a view
+or form, check here to see if they can handle it.
+Also, be sure to see the note on RegistrationProfile about use of
+the ``AUTH_PROFILE_MODULE`` setting.
