Script hook support was added. Post-user-add scripts are in 
/etc/gumd/useradd.d and pre-user-delete are in /etc/gumd/userdel.d. 
There are also corresponding groupadd.d and groupdel.d directories.

This is consistent with the general concept for security-manager and would add just one more security mechanism for it to handle. Then all Tizen logic for

I don't mind this, as long as we don't end up in long chains (deep 
layering)... gumd interface is still of course there, so it is up to 
integrator to decide how they want to do things.
