Hi Jelmer, all

Attached is a new patch which is an extension to the previous newuser 
functionality. It also adds the set of group commands (operating on the ldb)

Now, new user is created with CN='Firstname Initials. Lastname',<> if 
any of them exists and --use-username-as-cn is not set (this is the AD 
way) otherwise CN=username,<> is used
If --use-username-as-cn is defined then the user is created with 
CN=username,<> even if any of (Firstname, Initials,Lastname) exist

I also took liberty to add group set of subcommands, i.e.
/usr/local/samba/bin/net group
Available subcommands:

These only operate on ldb at the moment.
