Bug#341130: user-setup: No longer sets default user for exim4 configuration

Well, we need to find *where* this was done.

the code calling passwd reconfigure action is currently still here.

However, I find something else we will need to re-enable when we'll
remove the base-config "passwd" menu entry:

        # This should be done by passwd, not us.
        . /usr/share/debconf/confmodule
        db_get passwd/username
        if [ -n "$RET" ]; then
                adduser "$RET" audio >/dev/null 2>&1 || true
                adduser "$RET" cdrom >/dev/null 2>&1 || true
                adduser "$RET" dialout >/dev/null 2>&1 || true
                adduser "$RET" floppy >/dev/null 2>&1 || true
                adduser "$RET" video >/dev/null 2>&1 || true
                adduser "$RET" plugdev >/dev/null 2>&1 || true

Apart from that, I see nothing and I'm not aware of anything which did
set the first created user as default for exim4. Couldn't this be some
code in exim4 itself?
