[Pkg-shadow-devel] skip external database checks (NIS, LDAP)

I have received several requests where people asked for functionality that
will enable useradd, groupadd, to add records to local database even if the
same record exists in NIS/LDAP.
"-l" / "--local" switch can be introduced for this purpose. If it's used, then
pw_locate_uid(), pw_next(), pw_rewind(), gr_rewind(), ... would take place
instead of getgrgid(), getgrgid(), getpwuid(), getpwuid(), ... . Basically it
will omit name service switch (NSS)
Questions is if this functionality is desired and if it could be accepted by
upstream when I send a patch?
What you think?
