 +  MYSTIC -NEWUSER  This allows a new user to be created from the command line 
 +                   using the following key=value pairs: 
 +                    
 +                      handle=usernamehere

 +                      
 +                    At a minimum Mystic requires the handle, realname, and 
 +                    password fields to be set.  Mystic does NOT apply the 
 +                    password policy to the supplied password in these 
 +                    situations.  The security level also cannot be above 
 +                    249 and any attempt to set a security of 250 or higher 
 +                    will result in the user being created with a security 
 +                    level of 0. 
 +                     
 +                    Mystic will print TRUE or FALSE to STDIO depending on 
 +                    whether or not the user was properly created.  Failures 
 +                    occur when minimum values are not supplied or when a 
 +                    user already exists. 
 +
