Although related, these are two different targets with two different
scopes and probably two different audiences and possible contributors.
One is services configuration, which need tight collaboration with
packagers and even upstream developers.

The other one is user management, which many will consider useless
within datacenters, but a must when there are many (users & nodes)

To these 1/2 topics, I would add provisioning to the wishlist, which
is not a new item. Either cobbler based or not, in my opinion it
should address both iron and virtual deployments.
