I'm looking for a library that can handle user registration (name, address, e-mail etc.) into my existing WordPress website. What options exist today, or will I have to pull my own?

I am not sure about library part. WordPress has native and extensible capabilities to register users. Do you have a need to completely replace that functionality for something else with different specs? – Rarst Jan 26 '11 at 9:44
My client wishes that his customers to be able to sign up with their personal information (following the directives by our local laws of course.) If I can easily extend the native solution that might be a way to go -- otherwise I was hoping if a plugin existed of similar kind? – Zolomon Jan 26 '11 at 9:50

This is tutorial on extending user information I have stored in bookmarks: Adding and using custom user profile fields. Take a look and see if it fits your needs.

PS I am not following developments in user functionality closely so there might have been changes/improvements since tutorial was published.
