I think a cool *optional* functionality would be-
Whenever gdm receives an unknown username, *automatically* create that
account as new, and log them in.
Perhaps the way to implement your functionality, would be to have the
above, but after login attempt, a 15 second timeout prompt pops up (with
cancel), notifying that it was an unrecognized login, and asking for the
adminstrative password to confirm account creation. And then perhaps
a checkbox to enable/disable continuation of login for that user. Then
you get back to my functionality with an administrative setting that
just disables the popping up of the confirmation/authentication dialog.
