Packages adding groups in %pre/post



I've noticed that in some situations, packages that add users/groups in
%pre/post can fail.  What I most often see happening is while groupadd
or useradd is installed, and properly requested by Requires(pre) or
Requires(post) on shadow-utils, the /etc/group and /etc/passwd files
themselves aren't in place.  These come from the setup package.

Should the shadow-utils package Require the setup package, or require it
in such a way that it is in place before anything that calls
shadow-utils?  Should the packages that need to add users/groups not
only Requires(foo) on shadow-utils, but also setup?

Thoughts?
