What do you call a user database? If you mean a multiuser system, then they
definitely do. If you mean a list of "contacts" as users of things done by
Arabeyes, it's just for contacts. In any case, the module that really
completes it is dcl:) don't know what you don't like about it...

Honestly, I don't know. We can ask them directly, they often hang on irc on
openprojects.net #dcl or #phpgroupware, and they are very responsive to their
users (when they don't idle:))

If we opt for our own thing then we can do it from scratch, there's no point
in using their API, unless we'd want to integrate it in their groupware.

I have no strong feeling against it in any case. If you think it is positive
for Arabeyes, then go ahead. I just pointed out the existence of these in
case the need was solely to have them:)
