The documentation says to extend the user model you should add a profile model with a foreignkey with unique=True to the user.

Is there a reason for doing this instead of a OneToOne field?

The OneToOne field has the advantage that you can get the profile for the user directly.

The disadvantage of this approach is that you only have one profile per user. Nonetheless, the patch is fine and it's been approved.
