If you are working with the young, then you could then put a picture at
the terminal of the fruit (or jungle animal) and match the picture with
user pictures provided by the login manager (kdm does this. I think gdm
does too...). Then you can skip the students having to remember how to
spell "passionfruit"... Always a problem for my kids ;-).
