Well, these scripts are completely Darwin-specific (they use NetInfo,
not /etc/passwd). Any other OS would have better luck starting from
I was originally planning to merge this into sysutils/user, but they're
completely different (sysutils/user downloads a tarball, builds
binaries, and installs them, whereas sysutils/user_darwin just installs
shell scripts from the files/ dir), so it would have just been a mess.
