After getting some bug reports about usability of the "create user"
screen during installation we have decided to do something about it...
but it's not so easy.


My proposal

First of all, I'd move (A) to the final installation summary screen,
where we already have things like installing the bootloader on MBR or
disabling the firewall, configuring hardware and so on. It's one of
those advanced settings that most users will not touch.

About B, that's how the proposal would look like...
...if no previous users were detected
...if a partition with users is detected

This is already implemented and fully working here.

This is how it looks at the moment (acceptable, I'd say).

The texts (both the labels and the help) still need some love
(suggestions are welcome). But in general it works and behaves correctly
in all situations I have tested (including going backwards in the
install process)... not to mention a huge code refactoring.

Next step, finding a good place for "encryption method".
