So out of the box, you can set the home directory path property, but it
will not create them.

Novell Storage Manager (which supports AD/NTFS or eDir/NSS) is perfect
for this, and will get you so much more it is really worth it.

With the 4.02 AD shim, you can call somehwat arbitrary Powershell (from
the AD and Exchange modules) and I wonder if the AD one includes any
file system calls, which if it did you could do that.
