         Creates a new User and a new RegistrationProfile for that
         User, generates an activation key, and mails it.
         Pass ``send_email=False`` to disable sending the email.
+        To enable creation of a custom user profile along with the
+        User (e.g., the model specified in the ``AUTH_PROFILE_MODULE``
+        setting), define a function which knows how to create and save
+        an instance of that model with appropriate default values, and
+        pass it as the keyword argument ``profile_callback``. This
+        function should accept one argument:
+            user
+                The User object to which the profile will be related.

-        # First draft implementation here relies on an additional
-        # setting -- DEFAULT_AUTH_PROFILE_VALUES -- which must be
-        # a dictionary matching field names and default values for
-        # all non-nullable fields on the custom profile model
-        # (except the foreign key to User, which will be filled in
-        # automatically with the User who was just created).

     Allows a new user to register an account.
     On successful registration, an email will be sent to the new user
     with an activation link to click to make the account active. This
     view will then redirect to ``success_url``, which defaults to
     view to display a short message telling the user to check their
     email for the account activation link.
+    To enable creation of a site-specific user profile object for the
+    new user, pass a function which will create the profile object as
+    the keyword argument ``profile_callback``. See
