Thanks for speaking up as core@.

Can you please outline what the rationale is, and about what other 
"system" users it is? Questions I see here are:

  * should future imports of this kind keep the original ("_", etc.)
    username, to give up consiscency in NetBSD over keep differences with
    other systems small?
  * should all "system" accounts be renamed to have a leading "_"?
