userman.c implements lower level functions designed to operate on already
opened and authenticateed dcerpc pipe. libnet_user.c extends it to the
"official" api functions which make sure everything is set up correctly
before actually doing the work (like looking for remote server, opening
domain with certain access level). They also do a little clean up and
copy the results to the structure and memory context you provide.

If you look closer you'll find that, for instance, at some stage
libnet_CreateUser calls libnet_rpc_useradd_send.

Originally, userinfo.c and userman.c contained first implementation of
composite async functions making rpc calls.
