Actually, I was thinking of something along the lines of a combination of 
these two. A syncrepl client that allows arbitrary script execution with 
macro expansion.

While I doubt the utility for creating home directories (pam_mkhomedir is 
sufficient for all but the NFS-homes case IMHO), the quota issue is valid, 
and I have a few other examples (such as poor-man's meta-directory, or 
integration with closed platforms etc.).
