Currently we have a SQL Provider setup to manage a SharePoint Site Collection via Forms Based Authentication. However I currently have no real tools to manage the users within. I'd like to get a SharePoint based manager to I can add users, change passwords, etc. via SharePoint. Anyone out there ever built anything? A quick google search didn't reveal anything.

Although not integrated in SharePoint, the IIS7 management console allows you to maintain these users.

Just navigate to a web application that has the SQL Membership provider in the web.config and click on '.NET Users'.
