Although i see your reasoning and example, i'm not sure why you are not
happy to keep system accounts stored in /etc/passwd, as afterall they
refer to the local system. There doesnt seem to be any great benefit
keeping these accounts in a distributed database such as ldap, or is
there? I'm implementing a ldap directory server for user data and i had
planned to keep system accounts local.
