I don't see any reason not to use other components, provided they have 
source code, no point in trying to redevelop something that works.

Some people may prefer to use a database to store user information.  
Ideally the component would be data storage independent, calling 
functions to create a user, check a user, etc, where those functions can 
be overloaded with XML, registry, SQL, INI files, or whatever a user 
prefers.  I'll contribute the SQL version <g>
