I'll repeat what Hans has said - depending on what you're doing, this
could cause issues. Depending on what you're doing, you may want to
look at our user template functionality, if you're storing extra data
If it's best to use an extra column on the user table, you should be
able to access that column by getting a user object in the interface and
accessing the column as an attribute on the object:
user = sa_session.query( galaxy.model.User ).get( <user id> )
user.new_column = value
sa_session.add( user )
