But what SPECIFICALLY is it used for? Is it the user's Login
Shell (/bin/bash) or is it their UNIX Login ID (damin)?

I would assume that this is a field that is exported to a file to be
parsed on the Unix box and have the account created. For say... running a
Mail server on a Unix box and having the accounts synched between Unix
and the Emerald Database? :)
