[Adduser-devel] Bug#390457: adduser: deluser --system should be
configurable to not delete the account

I'd like to see deluser --system having a configuration option which
would prevent an account from actually being deleted. That way, a
local administrator could make sure that UIDs are not being re-used.
If this option is enabled, deluser --system would set the shell to
/bin/false and invalidate the password (I am not sure whether the
password should be destroyed or invalidated in a reversible way).
The default would, of course, be current behavior with actually
deleting the account.
