Signoff shadow.  Fixes always creating system groups with ID 99 (FS#16092).

Now UID/GIDs are as follows:

0-499 -> reserved for Arch packaging
500-999 -> system users/groups
1000-60000 -> general users/groups.

For some reason "groupadd --system" starts adding groups at 999 and 
working down, but that appears an upstream decision.

Signoff both,
