I'm wondering why arch does not stick to a minimal set of users and dynamically
adds users, if a package needs one?
The table looks a bit strange to me, as using high numbered ids
(qmail stuff) will probably break in every larger organisation, where
you setup uids from ldap to start at 1000 and they normally cover way
more than just 7k+.
It also looks like it creates a real mess in the system, if you pre-define
static mappings before and thus fillup 140 ids.
So, what's the point of having this static table and not just to generate
users with the next free id?
