Bug#2309: Multiple root accounts

Package: adduser
Version: 1.94-3

Forwarded message from debian-devel to file as a bug report:

> Hi...
> 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?
