Yes, but where? And do you really want to record all diffs from passwd
over time into usermod statements?
Over 'the history of the world',there have been roughly *two* changes. I
really don't think it's a big deal. For example, changing the homedir
of ftp was done in either wu-ftpd or vsftpd at the time.
