There are some cases when a user can login, have a user home directory path, but the directory itself is not present in the system. This is very common if the system is set up to use centralized auth (i.e. kerberos). Is it possible for systemdspawner to create the user home directory on login, so we don't need an admin to provision every new user manually?

This might be more appropriately a job for the authenticator instead of the spawner. Maybe both, though.
