I have few minor-ish issues:

0) I was thinking if this new approach for assignment of ipa default
users is safe enough. If user accidentally mess with automember and
modifies/deletes the default group rule, new users may be omitted from
the default group set in IPA config. Are we sure that we are OK with

1) Several tests are provided with a hard-code basedn
(dc=greyoak,dc=com). api.env.basedn would a better choice

2) We could optimize user.py not to retrieve config from LDAP since it
is now needed only when api.env.wait_for_attr is now. I think this may
speedup the command a little bit:
        # Automember adds our user to the default group for us.
        if self.api.env.wait_for_attr:
            config = ldap.get_ipa_config()[1]
            def_primary_group = config.get('ipadefaultprimarygroup')
            newentry = wait_for_value(ldap, dn, 'memberOf',
            entry_from_entry(entry_attrs, newentry)
