[arch-dev-public] Snort UID / GID

I've updated the snort package. The package is now working well, but I
have a question:

I am creating a snort user and group during the package installation.
Should we reserve a UID / GID to it? I think this is important because
snort should run with fewer privileges since it can monitor the
network, integrate itself with iptables and so on.
