Managing users and groups within multiple devel chroots.

Is it possible to configure a set of chroots (woody, sarge, whatever)
so that all of the chroot passwd/group DBs will stay in sync with each
other and with the host DB automaticall, so that, for example, a
useradd, usermod, or userdel, will automatically affect all of the DBs
simultaneously and safely?

For this to work right, in addition to everything else, I assume that
Debian policy would also have to guarantee that no package will ever
remove a user/group when purged, and no package will balk if the
user/group it needs already exists.
