In that case, why are you objecting to this patch ? I personally think 
you are being a bit hypocritical here, if my patch shouldn't be used, 
you should also be saying 'We shouldn't advise people to use ADUC.'

Again, if, in the long term, there are not going to be major changes in 
this area, why are you objecting to this patch ? This patch would make 
it easier to add users & groups, just like ADUC, but on the command 
line. If or when major changes are made (and I assume these will have to 
be accepted by Microsoft), the way users & groups are added will have to 
be changed and a new python script will be required, but until then, we 
have to work with what we have got and do it the easiest way.
