/**
* Implements hook_system_info_alter().
*
* Drupal 7 ships with two methods to add additional fields to users: Profile
* module, a legacy module dating back from 2002, and Field API integration
* with users. While Field API support for users currently provides less end
* user features, the inefficient data storage mechanism of Profile module, as
* well as its lack of consistency with the rest of the entity / field based
* systems in Drupal 7, make this a sub-optimal solution to those who were not
* using it in previous releases of Drupal.
*
* To prevent new Drupal 7 sites from installing Profile module, and
* unwittingly ending up with two completely different and incompatible methods
* of extending users, remove it from the available modules by setting it to
* hidden if the profile_* tables are not already present.
*
* @todo: Remove in D8, pending upgrade path.
