I'm having fun learning cfengine, here's a slightly different
way for kicks.

  /usr/bin/getent passwd |\
    /usr/bin/awk -F: '{print "+user_" $1 "_exists"}' |\
     sed 's/-/_/g'


AddInstallable  = ( user_user1_exists user_user2_exists )
actionsequence  = ( module:users shellcommands  )



     "/usr/sbin/useradd -r -c X -s /sbin/nologin -d / -M -g nobody X


It seems to work without addinstallable, but the docs say to use it, so
I do, otherwise there is a little less typing.

Now I got to work out where my in-reply-to header is.
