it's not that easy, if you have several users, can be managed for <10,
after more difficult, not possible at all if several distros are involved
on the lan

There's no substitute for proper planning and implementation. In a unix world, you pick one uid per user and stick with it. If you allow random uncontrolled growth of your environment and user base, you end up with a mess, and the longer you wait to fix it, the messier it gets.

Ok, you tell that to the developers, who changed the lowest UID from 500 to 1000.
