[389-users] Enhanced useradd bash script for 389-ds

I've recently deployed 389 on our compute cluster, and I found the 
389-console to be frustrating and limiting in some ways[0].  One of the 
things I missed most was being able to add users *easily* from the 
command line.  I had a quick search around and found only one mention of 
a tool for this, an example shell script from the Red Hat Netgroup 
whitepaper[1] in 2008.

I've taken this script and modernized it a bit, including things like 
auto incrementing the user and group IDs based on the latest UID/GID in 
the directory.  The script is on my github account[2].

Hope someone else can take advantage of (and improve!) it.  Thanks!
