Since, I could not re-open the discussion here is how / workaround you search through users/ make an nice user information page.

1.) Use web services to grab user information for every single user.
2.) Store that information into some temporary data object
3.) Use jQuery, ExtJs, YUI, Dojo or some other framework to make a sortable and searchable grid.
4.) Enjoy now being able to search through users in any way you see fit.

If you want to get clever you can create an html or php page, put it in the CMS in your IT folder with an .htacess file on it so only you can access it (or only people you want to access it) and now you have a psuedo user admin page.

Another extremely useful benefit of this is to get email addresses quickly for all users, so you can send them notices of any pertinent CMS information.
