the display manager look and feel should integrate well with the rest
of the UI. We could pick a suggested dm and provide an upstream theme
for it.

Not sure how account name and sugar nick name should interact. Ideally
they would be the same I think, but then you can't change the name

Finally account management is going to be tricky because it requires
privileges and deployment requirements may vary.
