There is a third way. You can force all the blogs in your network to  
share the same database tables for users and users_meta while  
retaining their own stuff for everything else. It just takes a little  
bit of wp-config.php fu and you're done.

Let me know if you want me to go into more detail. I've been meaning  
to blog about this anyway, since I wrote a plugin to overcome one of  
the drawbacks in this approach: http://xentek.net/code/wordpress/plugins/wp-orphanage/
