Although I doubt this affects any Debian package, given the default
allowed pattern in adduser/addgroup for user names, and going from
memory from last time I scanned all of them. This is still a potential
problem for site-specific users or even with just bogus input.

So yes, I do think this is worth proposing for a stable update, and
something I realized the day after fixing it and while getting back
from my daily lethargy, that I had forgotten to mark the commit with
a Stable-Candidate field. :)

In any case, once this is in sid, I'll push it to the queue of proposed
fixes for stable.
