Suggestion: make this dependent on debconf PRIORITY.
HIGH: add user automatically; this would mostly be used by end-users installing
a desktop, probably for single user
MEDIUM: show dialog with some groups (like audio, cdrom) preselected by default
LOW: show dialog with no groups preselected by default
It would be nice if some explanation of the use of each group would be given
in the dialog.
I think there is little or any real security risk if this feature would be
well documented and explained in the installation manual.
