Makes sense to me; we don't use uss, but I have Perl code that uses  
Expect.pm to talk to kadmin as part of our own account creation  
tools.  (We would need a uss hook anyway to add information to our own  
account databases.)  Perhaps I should make that generic and contribute  
it as a skeleton account creation script for a modified uss.
