Hi, is it this easy to add code, only reason I ask is that I wrote some 
very similar code back in june and didn't know what to do with it, in 
fact the only difference I can see between Stephane's code and mine is:

   HIS:       Option("--unixhomedir", help="Unix home diretcory of 
User", type=str),

   Mine:     Option("--unix-home-directory", help="User's Unix home 
directory path", type=str),

The problem that I see with adding the gidNumber, is what base to use, 
it needs to be something that everybody can agree on.
