Intent to fix base-passwd
while testing the base packages I hit the critical bugs surrounding the
update-passwd binary contained in base-passwd.
I want to introduce a -n flag to update-passwd which prints out the
proposed changes to /etc/passwd and /etc/group without actually
executing them (debug mode). I try to take care of the NIS and shadow
stuff. The postinst should be changed to something along the lines:
Ask user if changes are ok.
Any objections and/or other proposals how to fix the critical bugs ?

What's the railroad to me ?
I never go to see
Where it ends.
It fills a few hollows,
And makes banks for the swallows,
It sets the sand a-blowing,
And the blackberries a-growing.
(Henry David Thoreau)
