	Yep, seems fine.

	Well, the sabayon user is only used by the sysadmin UI, so shouldn't be
needed on user machines.

	I've split the package into two - sabayon and sabayon-admin, the latter
containing the admin UI and its this package which creates the user. Oh,
I've made the user sabayon-admin instead of sabayon.

	(Committed to CVS, it builds fine, but I still need to test tomorrow
whether it runs okay)
