You're not the first to ask.  I'm no expert, but maybe this will help get
some more responses going:

* Because AuthUser is the PM-created product, and included with the core
distribution, it makes sense to give AuthUser your best shot before putting
time into UserAuth.

* At least on my older, V2.0.12 wikis, UserAuth breaks the ?action=attr
method; the two don't work together, where-as AuthUser and ?action=attr
co-exist quite nicely.

* PM continues to develop AuthUser - he says he's going to add features that
will allow users to self-register.
