Great little module that solves the problem of doing easy user registration where you want new users to be able to interact with the site quickly and then fill out a more detailed registration form later. However, it's mostly rendered ineffective by the relentless spambot assault.
Seems like it should be possible to add hooks so that the form is visible to the various human-user-authentication modules like Captcha, HoneyPot, etc. Right now, because the form is present only in a block, those modules do not recognize it as a form and can't be invoked.
