Account management and creation tool

'userneu' is a Perl script that parses a list of usernames and additional information (such as the real name or other Information to be put in the GECOS field in /etc/passwd) and creates Unix accounts and (if desired) Samba accounts as well. If the script stumbles upon duplicate user names it can append random characters to the username until it fits.
