Actually, I posted this a bit earlier... Yep, you can now update user
info and register users (at least from the admin panel...
self-registration is still not fully implemented).
Are you attempting to combine 2 WP blogs? If so, that's a BUTTLOAD
easier than doing SMF and WP... Sharing the user base between 2 WP
blogs is just a matter of assigning one install to be the 'master'
install and the other to be a 'slave'. I can work on a plugin for you
if you'd like, since this is somewhat similar to what I'm doing, but
would require much less hacking through the code finding where all the
passwords are MD5()'d...
