The Debian patch severally relaxes the rules - it just disallows some
On the other hand Fedora uses the same approach as the shadow upstream
but allows a little bit more - the '.', and uppercase letters.
We recently got a request to disable the "." and ".." usernames.
No matter how far down the wrong road you've gone, turn back.
(You'll never know whether the road is wrong though.)
