vadduser has always allowed the plaintext password to be specified
on the command line as:

  vadduser email_address password

Newer versions can generate a random password with:

  vadduser -r email_address

Both forms can be run from perl using backticks.  The random password
from the second form can be collected from the backticks in perl.
