    + Line-wrap B-D and D fields.
    + Provide more info in LONG_DESCRIPTION.

    - Set HOME env variable to the new home directory, also on initial user
      login. This makes it possible to drop the concept of enforced re-login
      on initial user login. (Closes: #760496, #961254).
    - Whitespace clean-up.

libpam-mklocaluser: Configure PAM to create a local user if it do not exist already

 When the user logs in for the first time, a local POSIX user account is
 created in /etc/passwd and primary group created in /etc/group, and a
 local home directory is created in /home.
 This is useful on roaming computers when the password is set up to be
 cached by for example libpam-ccreds or sssd to allow login without
 network connectivity using the password provided by a network
 authentication service like Kerberos or LDAP.
 Other than the caching mechanisms of libpam-ccreds or libpam-sssd /
 libnss-sssd, the libpam-mklocaluser approach makes the LDAP accounts
 more persistent on the roaming workstation and robust again credentials
 cache deletions and such.
 The pam_mklocaluser PAM module additionally allows for execution of
 additional hook scripts when users log in to such a roaming computer for
 the first time.
