Re: Policy on Account creation and deletion?

I was thinking in something just like that while I was reading this
thread. Actually I started thinking this could be a new feature of the
debian package, in this way, dpkg would check if the user exists, and
create it or not.

But I think a debhelper script would be much nicer, but there are other
problem... what if I do need that user to exists during the postinst? It
makes me think that having a debian-specific system users manager would
be nicer.

This "System users manager" could map which packages creates each users
and maybe even not allow a package delete a user created by another
