During the install, is there no way to scan the partition containing /etc 
_before_ it is formatted, store the relevant lines of /etc/passwd, and use 
that information as a basis to automagically re-create the users ?
       A new koan:                                                    
               If you have some ice cream, I will give it to you.     
               If you have no ice cream, I will take it away from you.
       It is an ice cream koan.
