Do you mean, "builtin users list" == UIDs which OSes provide by

Can we provide a pre-defined pkgsrc username/UID "range"?

For example, if I set PKG_UID_RANGE=500-999 and install foo-1.2.3
which needs user "_foo" which has pkgsrc UID index 50, pkg_add(8)
will useradd(8) user "_foo" as 550 and chown files.

Does this sound reasonable?
