I was under the impression that the uid would be assigned dynamically
at install time. Having that many static uid would be a problem.

I recall reading (somewhere) that we assign uids 500 - 999 for local
sysadmin use. And that we might/will trample on uids 1 - 499
(i.e. they are eserved for the distribution).
