Hi Ricardo

That is a very good point IMO. I think it's fair to look at that as the
loss of an, optional, feature - this step of entering user information. 

I'm tempted to ask you to use the issue tracker, entering the
description and marking the issue as Request for Enhancement. 

Not that we should have the on-line registration, but rather to add a
(strong?) prompt during installation, with the intent to have the user
enter that information.

What do you think?
