 - webmin: I think it is useful (and nice) not to have to launch mozilla
   to add an user or change a password.
 - debconf: dpkg-reconfigure users ? debconf is there to configure
   applications and I don't want to replace it at all. It is just not
   suited for some tasks
 - linuxconf: Marco d'Itri sent a comment I agree with (excepted for
   the insecure part where I don't have enough knowledge to judge)
