And that administrator can install their special package in %post,
then install whatever Fedora packages that don't have hard
requirements on fedora-usermgmt, and they get the behavior you want
without forcing fedora-usermgmt on people who don't want it.

Right now none of my packages even have the option of fedora-usermgmt.
I'd consider adding code like Ville suggested, but I will not add the
hard dependency.
