A suggestion. It doesn't seem necessary to distinguish between the 
users on loncapa and the institutional directory. When a user wants 
to find another user, the user really doesn't care it comes from. I 
suggest that when a search is requested, both data bases (if the 
institutional directory is enabled) be search. If there is a 
conflict, then the existing user takes precedence. I don't expect to 
see any conflicts but who knows.
