Thanks for the reference.  I got a referal to that earlier in the
day.  What I wonder though is how we are supposed to clear these new
IDs so someone else doesn't use it too.  I understand it is difficult
or impossible to update this list.  Example: I might take user 111 and
group 111 but there's no way for some other package developer to try
and use the same ones in his or her project.  I guess as long as those
two packages don't end up on the system, no harm, no fowel:).
