You're meant to obtain a consensus on debian-devel before doing this
(Policy 2.3.4).

Does anybody object?

The problem is that the _preinst_ might use the programs useradd and
groupadd.  These are not in the base system nor essential.  They're
included in the passwd package.  They might use configuration files
that might not be configured when using a normal Dependency.

Is there another way to solve this?
