Yup. Note that GOA has a well-defined format (I need to add this
information to some man page soon) for defining accounts - basically
key-value files in
with goa-daemon(8) listening for changes as well.
The way I think it should work is that you can only modify/delete
accounts defined in in the latter file - the intent is that the
accounts.conf.d directories are for system administrators only. We do
need an Account:CanModify property that e.g. the control-center should
use to make the "Delete" button insensitive. Do you think this would
work with Evo too?
