That's not a terrible idea.

Hrm, so I wonder about this.  Does exim rely on the group ownership at
all for anything?  Would it make sense to have a general 'service' or
'nobody' group that these things could be tossed in if the group isn't
to be used, to avoid taking dynamic GIDs on the host?  Or should we say
that if you are going to take a specific UID, you need to take the GID
to match it?
