[arch-dev-public] adding http user/group to filesystems

as mentioned in the apache thread I would like to use a dedicated user/group 
for our different webserver packages. To achieve this I'd like to add the 
user/group http to our filesystem package. (It allready contains them for 
mail and ftp)

According to 
http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/DeveloperWiki:UID_/_GID_Database uid/gid 
33 should be free for use.

An install script to add those for upgraders have to be added, too.

Another approach would be adding an install script creating those groups to 
the webserver packages.

What do you think is best?
