Multiple root accounts


I'd rather open this for discussion that a bug report, but I'd like to
have multiple root accounts (ie: root, root2, root3 etc) on one system -
however it buggers adduser up when adding a normal user.

I've tried making 5 root accounts all with UID/GID 0:0, and when I run
adduser it tries to allocate UID 1000 (which is already taken my my
normal account) and write that username before mine with UID 1000 in
the passwd file.  If I take the additional root accounts out then there is
no problem with adduser.

Is there a way around this?
