One way to do it might be analogous to supplimentary groups: Have a
file /etc/supplimentary-uids that lists login-time supplimentary uids.
Add a function init_supplimentary_uids to libc, analogous to
initgroups. Or add the code that reads the file to initgroups, on the
assumption that one wants supplimentary uids added under the same
circumstances under which one wants to add supplimentary groups.
