I'm not sure how you'd go about doing that, but be warned that you're walking
on very thin ice (security-wise) to allow such an action. You must be very
extra super careful not to get hacked!

Not only that you'll be potentially allowing hackers to create users on your
machine, but at some time the input from the user (username/pass) will be
processed by a script running as root (you can't create users otherwise).
That's one of the riskiest tricks I've seen around.

Take care!
