This is a very good idea. This variable could be set in mk.conf.

Additionally, how about a user.list like in OpenBSD ports, but with
_offsets_ relative to the range given? This way, at least the UIDs
depend only on the platform (ideally), not on the order in which the
packages were built and installed.

For example, if you have platform XY set a default range of, say,
20000-21000 and a user squid with offset +20 in user.list, binary
packages would be created with the user squid with uid 20020,
regardless of what other packages have been installed.
