At first reaction, I am not very keen at doing this *by default*.
nologin is intended as a replacement shell field for accounts that
have been disabled. So, making it a valid shell defeats that.
I recommend you to do it manually locally with add-shell(8)
Other shadow maintainers, do we have an agreement, here?
