Hi all,

  Technically, you could do the same with xdb_file, just by reading the
  users .xml file. I'm a little worried about xdb_sql due to transports
  and the like.

  Saying that, the mod_pending server patch is also good, as detailed in
  another reply. I've been including that in all the servers i've built
  in the past.
