Well, its 'almost' working in the 2.2.0 pre-release. Jean Francois
Micouleau is currently working on it, he has submitted some code but there
are a couple of problems at present. He's pretty close so we won't have
long to wait with any luck ...

Problems are :
1. The script that makes accounts runs as the user you enter, not root.
2. The machine name is wrong, might just be a typo.
