For me the discussion isn't about requires or not, its about
fedora-usermgmt.  I mean, up to all this time we've been using useradd
(provided by shadow-utils).  The main purpose of this thread was to
bring about discussion before the FESCo takes a look at it.  Which
will be in a few weeks.  I'm still not convinced that:

   A) there is a problem that needs solving
   B) that this solved that problem.

Just because we can, doesn't mean we should.  I've never run into a
UID issue regarding system users on any of my machines.  I'm not
saying they can't, but how often does it happen to the rest of us out
there?
