Bug#1792: vipw, vigr missing

Dear Ian Jackson!

}Package: miscutils?
}Version: 1.3-2
}There should be vipw and vigr scripts for editing /etc/passwd and
}/etc/group.  This is so that it is easy for the sysadmin to do the
}locking necessary to ensure that updates do not get lost.

vipw is encluded in util-linux. (latest version 2.5, 2.6 will be
a havily improved package)

In the util-linux package actually there is no vigr included. But
for some reason I work on this. Perhaps it would be a good idea
if the miscutils maintainer (I don't know who that is) could
contact me then.
