Also the current version of adduser uses gettext, so it's no problem to
translate to different languages. The support of different frontend is
also possible with my suggestion of a modular design. With this design,
no real work in done in adduser itself, but instead in the different
"modules" (or call them whatever you like). So it should be quite easy
to write another frontend to the modules besides adduser like gadduser
or whatever.
