System.Posix.User is inadequate

There are several problems with this module:
1) There is no way to get all users/groups on the system (getpwent)
2) The UserEntry type does not reflect the Gecos field (pw_gecos)
3) The UserEntry type does not reflect the password field (pw_passwd)
4) The GroupEntry type does not reflect the gr_passwd field
This renders is unfortunately useless for some very basic Unix tasks.
Is there still time to fix this for 6.6?
