Ugh, I forgot some system daemons will be installed and eat UIDs
between 500-1000.  Including your own shadow-utils with a modified
login.defs is probably the best solution.

Ideally, authconfig would gain an option to do this so that line of
the kickstart could modify it.  (Although anaconda might run that too
late too, I don't know.)
