Yes, but only up to uid 100. I remember having a discussion about this
with Jeremy several months ago, and istr him liking the idea of us
creeping into at least the 101-499 space for the hard-coded uidgid list,
but that someone needed to actively push this. One thing that needs
clarification is the (iirc) LSB, with respect to what 101-499 can be
used for. We'd like to maintain LSB compliance, but the guidelines were
a bit hazy in this area, so perhaps pushing the LSB to clarify how that
uid space should be used is the first step to deep-sixing the atrocity
that is fedora-usermgmt (hey, I'm that guy too).
