Running user nobody with noshell

Dear all,

is there any potential problem if user nobody is run with shell

The reason why I am asking: Today, sarge complained that /bin/noshell
for nobody would violate the Debian defaults, and it's highly
recommended to allow update-passwd to change this.

Any opinions and comments?
