reassing 57280 adduser

The analysis of this bug report shows that the user reporting it wants
to have the choice, possibly during an initial install, to either use
user groups or add all users to the default "users" group.

passwd, while reconfigured, relies on adduser for this. One solution
could be a debconf-based configurable option to either use "users"
groups or the "users" group by default with adduser.

I would give a quite low priority to this. After all, the creation of
a first user can be skipped in new installs...
