You should use 'au nu' (new user), cp changes the password of an
existing user in the list, but codaclnt isn't in that list yet.

How do you mean? A Coda server doesn't export an existing tree in
/vicepa, it can only show files that have associated metadata (such as
version vectors) in RVM, which is only created by storing files through
a Coda client.

So any /vicepa/janput/blah won't show, but if you create a file in
/coda/janput/blah on a client, /vicepa will get a 'container file'
called /vicepa/00/00/00/01 or something and there will be a bit of
metadata in RVM that describes this file's attributes.
