That's the part I don't understand: why a global registry ?
So that multiple systems have the same ids. Or so that if you do a
reinstall, your files have the same owners.
Isn't the point of adding local UIDs to get a kind of macro
thing, i.e. what
is standard is the name, which should be the same on all machines, but nobody
cares what the actual UID is ?
The filesystem cares. Therefore, we have to.
