Look at includes/User.php. It seems to be fairly well encapsulated
there. But I don't think it will be simple.
I took a different approach, and extended the mw_users table with the
additional user data I needed. It took a lot of changes to User.php and
SpecialPreferences.php, but it's working now. Users can update their
own address, phone, etc. info.
