Dynamic allocation of the uid does not hinder this, not having a
package-independent directory for zone files is what causes the
hindrence, if anything.  Names exist so you don't have to know the uid.
It's a pretty simple operation to create the user if it doesn't exist.
Everyone just needs to agree on where the zone files are going to be (if
they're really capable of working in any DNS server setup...) and the
*name*.  *Not* the uid.
