What is sure is that it put too much work on dev side, see related bug reports.
We discussed that several times and I understood there was a general agreement
on removing this "feature".
It's a long standing problem and we will need to re-educate the users/sysadmin
to use other tools, like the script to create real user accounts.
I think we will certainly have to provide more tools to replace this

They will have to create a superlibrarian user.

I do not understand what it means.

I told it on comment 8, the idea was to let testers think about what I forgot.
