When I install a regular debian sarge 
I am induced to enter a non root user to receive certain mails etc.
This user has then uid 1000 gid 1000. 

Since converting old PCs to debian sarge now I own 3 (three)
installations where this is my identity and I use it for my regular
work. For a new notebook, which does not work with sarge, I choose to
use grml, and have not yet come to the point of installing my user
I have this for purposes like NIS and nfs and I use it for nfs. 
this habit should be taken into account

An user like  grml-rebuildfstab who is doing system work should not have
an uid gid in the normal user range, but in the range 1-999 

my 2cts worth of brain damage
