So we could even drop the 'guest' user created by mic. I'm not sure if
we can create an image without specifying a default user (it was 'tizen'
before, 'guest' now...). This is something to check.

Anyway, if I understand correctly, only the root user should be created.
Other users ('guest', 'guest-common, 'guest-ivi', 'guest-seat0' or
whatever the names) should be added through gumd, during image creation,
correct ?  Is it possible right now ? How ?
