I am trying to avoid creating a user in the first place.  From what I have
been able to trace in the RT code, a first class user is created from the
CC field.

But that's a bit confusing in our case.  We are using our own external
authentication system and when CCs are automatically created, our system
detects the new user and let them request a password.  But since we just
want them to be receiving emails, not accessing RT, a password leads them
to confusion.  They cannot/should not see anything in RT.

Of course we could change our code to double check if these accounts are
'empty' (not members of anything).  But I was wondering if we could skip
the user account in the first place.

That might be tricky since we still want them to receive correspondence
about the ticket.
