I've reconstructed and improved my lost C++ code for this issue. I'm no 
longer relying on a sentinel to detect empty
user names. The attributes of the User element determine whether a user 
account should be created if it doesn't
already exist and whether it should be updated if it does exist. This 
makes it possible to add, change, or remove a
user comment. It also makes it possible to change a user password.

I did not try to finalize this issue. I wanted to allow others to verify 
the functionality manually before deciding whether
to skip the test by default. I think enabling the test in the event of 
new related issues might be wiser than potentially
creating security holes and unwanted desktop icons on developers machines.
