>From adduser(8):

       If  the  file /usr/local/sbin/adduser.local exists, it will be executed
       after the user account has been set up in order to do any local  setup.
       The arguments passed to adduser.local are:
       username uid gid home-directory
       The  environment  variable  VERBOSE  is  set according to the following

       0 if --quiet is specified

       1 if neither --quiet nor --debug is specified

       2 if --debug is specified

              (The same applies to the variable DEBUG, but DEBUG is deprecated
              and will be removed in a later version of adduser.)

So while it doesn't use run-parts, it's halfway there already.
I use adduser.local on chiark.
