Apologies for the delay - I've been traveling.

You must be logged in with admin privileges (able to read a page with
"admin" rights) and then access the URL with either ?action=user/menu and
choose "edit user group" or go directly to ?action=user/group. It should be
obvious from there, with the caveat that groups must begin with @ -- I just
accidentally tested without the @ and it gives a misleading error message
that I'll need to fix later. (Now looking more carefully I see that was
reported in mid-August by Gerolkae on the talk page.)

I have done no testing with allowing custom fields in useradmin-dbase.
Without doubt you will have to update the database manually (phpmyadmin or
the like) and be careful to follow naming conventions. I'd be surprised if
it worked, but stranger things have happened... :-)  Let me know what
problems you run into and I'll try to fix them as I'm able.

Does it suffice to have a configurable target redirect page after
registration? Or does there need to be a greater degree of control? Are you
thinking of having useradmin handle the payment side of things (unlikely
that will be implemented) or does useradmin just need to provide the signup
details in a URL (much more do-able - perhaps already available through a
custom form)?
