I tested a bit to see what happens. If you create a class  
"App::Model::User" having "Jifty::Plugin::Login::Model::User" as base  
and append fields to the schema, the database is created right. fine.

After an action of class "App::Action::CreateUser" is build via Jifty- 
 >web->new_action, this action reports its "record_class" to be  
"Jifty::Plugin::Login::Model::User" instead of your own class  
"App::Model::User". I am not quite sure, but I think this is a side- 
effect of Module::Pluggable, as I did never see a  
"App::Action::CreateUser" to get created by "Jifty::ClassLoader".

Applying a *bad* hack into the "App::User" class like

   # bad hack!!!
   package App::Action::CreateUser;
   sub record_class {

now reports the right "record_class" on the action and the admin  
works. However, the Action modules in the Login plugin explicitly use  
the "Jifty::Plugin::Login::Action::..." actions, so they will not  
work on expanded models.
Maybe there is a way to get around this. I personally would find the  
possibility of expanding the "User" record fine...

Otherwise I should better erase the "Expanding..." section on
