The 'users' command shows users who are currently online. It will be nice

Do you mean the equivelent to this?

   $ getent passwd | awk -F: '{print$1}'

Solving the problem in general gets messy very quickly.  It is
therefore one of those that is better solved locally by providing the
tools needed to do what is needed on a case by case basis.  So far
after forty years of Unix and GNU systems this hasn't been needed and
therefore the use cases must be unusual.  The philosophy isn't to
solve all problems but just to make all problems solvable.

It would help if you could say a few words about the case in
which this would be helpful?

With no further comments in almost 6 years,
and this item already listed under our "rejected requests" page,
I'm closing this as "won't fix".
