Re: Call for special UIDs/GIDs for the base package

If the user and group IDs are reserved, there isn't much point in _not_
having them in the password file when the system is delivered, is there?
Packages should still install them if they aren't in the password file,
but I think the presence of reserved uids/gids of unistalled packages
will help to avoid collisions with user-installed software.
