I don't think that's very compelling honestly. In addition when creating
user accounts there's a whole bunch more parameters you potentially want
to set besides just the username - see how many options exist with the
'useradd' command. Also with some users you might not want to set any
password. So if we want to create users via QGA, I think that having a
separate command makes more sense.
