with the previously proposed/accepted GLEP 27 stalled, i'm looking into 
mitigating the current suckiness of enew{user,group}/egetent.  the first step 
is simple: let's split these funcs out of eutils.eclass and into a dedicated 
eclass.  this makes it trivial for people externally to override the 
functionality and hook into whatever craziness they want.

eutils.eclass will inherit this new eclass directly (for the foreseeable 
future), so there's no need for tree-wide update bonanzas.

suggested name: euser.eclass
