Right, and I think that the most of the plugin I had belongs
server-side; in fact, that's where I migrated it to, and things work
fine.  I haven't tested if I can change those values with the cli, but
I'm less concerned about that at the moment.

In this case, my biggest problem is with the web UI.  The 'manager'
drop down (which I have renamed through the UI plugins to "Requested
By" to show what user requested and is responsible for this account)
works fine in the 'add/modify stageuser' context, but not at all in
the adduser/moduser context, and I can't seem to find out why.
