Please no, it requires the admin's attention to setup some random
space in his user uid/gid space, and if he misses it (who really cares
about yet another package pulled in by yum install foo) or forgets
this setup he runs into possible uid/gid conflcits between packages
and users. We don't want that for Fedora and even less for RHEL.
