deluser  allows  the  use  of  "--system"  to avoid  to  remove  a  real
user. userdel does  not have this kind of  switch. Using userdel instead
of deluser is dangerous. I would prefer to leave the user untouched than
removing the wrong user instead. Of course, the postrm script should not
stop because of this (|| true).
