sorry, but there is a bug report already (#54663),
that is why I didn't want to create another one.

Also, if you are so sure that everyone doesn't need
a login shell, then why did you provide "--ls" ?  ;-)

We need it here at our bigger site, because we as sysadmins
don't want to touch the login files in users' home dirs.
