Before I strike out and try to invent something, I wanted to know if
anybody had addressed this issue.

We are using the login/user engines to manage security, etc. We have a
need to add columns to the user and permissions tables. Is there any
standard way to override / augment the engine migrations *without*
hacking those in the vendor directory? IOW, I'd like to add/override
some migration functions in some way similar to the way we override

Any thoughts?

There's no reason why you can't drop or add columns to the tables
which are created by the engine migrations - you just need to be
careful about the order in which you migrate your systems (i.e.
probably engines first, and then your specific application migrations
