You also want to be sure any "deleted" account details get applied to
all systems that may have been accessed by said account.  Home dirs on
various Fedora machines, directory permissions on any files owned by
the now-deleted account, CVS ACLs, ...   it's non-trivial to do so
everywhere, but proper.
