	They could as things stand now, too. A person recruiting high-speed
contributers for their team can't tell that someone's not on any team, but
they can tell that the person's not on *their* team, which is what would
concern them.

	If it's a matter of privacy, why not make it an option in the user
info? Defaulting to off, of course.
