[EP-tech] command line user delete?

Hi Herbert,

I am not aware of anyway of programmatically removing a user from the 
command line.? There is the EPRINTS_PATH/bin/toolbox that can do 
standard API like operations but only for eprints, documents and files, 
including delete in a way similar to how you may intend for these 
spurious users.? It may be possible to extend this but would need to be 
done with care.

I assume in your scenario they are unused user accounts with no eprints 
associated.? These would be safe to delete but those with eprints would 
need to have a mechanism for reassigning them or at least confirm the 
person using the command is happy for them to be deleted as well.? I 
think this is probably why there is no command line tool to do this, as 
it could be rather dangerous.
