If so, would also adding /home to a drop down menu keep the logic that the home directory will be created as /home/$username for a user account? At the moment, this field is not a drop down menu but instead auto-fills in as the user types the username; this is handy but isn't such a good default for system accounts.

I've also fixed this up a bit for 9/8.2. It doesn't have a drop-down, but you can click the homedir field
and change it to anything, such as /nonexistant and it'll accept it now :)
