I apologize if this is a dupe. Searching on "D7" or "7.x" is not allowed and "core" turned up nothing useful.
With users being fieldable objects in D7, it seems to finally make sense for most folks to drop the nodes as profiles route. There are still some cases to be made for having them be nodes but the biggest, using CCK with them, is no longer a reason. Folks starting with D7 will likely choose the pure fields route but those of us upgrading from D6 have a decision to make.
I'm wondering what you, as the maintainer of the key profile as nodes module, have planned for D7? Are you intending to port Content Profile as is and continue down the profile as nodes route? Or are you planning on writing a converter to core fields?
To be clear, I don't expect work on anything to be starting now. :) I'm just wondering about your plans, if any, so I can make plans of my own. This might be a good thing to document on the project page as well since it's hard to search on.
