When one clicks on "New User?" at Lon Capa's login screen, the subsequent
screen that appears will prompt the user to enter the following personal data:

E-mail address*:	
Confirm password*:	
First Name:	
Last Name:	

Is there a "no-coding-required" way to add a "Student/Employee ID" entry in
the mix as part of their data entry?

If coding is the only way to modify it, which perl module is responsible
for that?  Can you offer us some coding tips and code fragments on how to
accomplish this?

We would like to explore having students of one particular class here
auto-create Lon Capa accounts themselves. The students would then
self-enroll in a Lon Capa course which would house a copy of our Math
Placement Test (with time slots and all that).  Having the student's
university ID as part of his/her personal data would be vital.
