We could possibly do this by using the 'myfedora' application 
namespace that already exists in the FAS person config model.  Each user
in the db can have a list of configs for a variety of different apps
(currently hardcoded to asterisk, moin, myfedora, and openid).

For MyFedora we were thinking about storing various widget settings in
this field, but the namespace has not yet been decided on.

I'm not familiar with the FAS codebase, but we may be able to do
something like this::

    from fas.model import Person, Configs

                    'tags' : ['FUDCon2008Boston'],
                    'skills': ['python', 'c++', 'trolling'],
                    'karma' : -8,
