I'm not trying to hassle you, but now's the time to get it right. The old enewuser method would leave an existing directory alone, but (to support homedir/permission fixes in new revisions) acct-user.eclass will modify the ownership and permissions of an existing directory. As a result, it's especially important that we not choose a sensitive homedir and enforce permissions/ownership that we might not really need.
