[Slackbuilds-users] UID/GID for another Dovecot case

I am writing a Slackdocs article for setting up a virtual mail server 
using Postfix, Dovecot and MySQL.

In this use case we require a separate non-priv user/group for which the 
Dovecot documents suggest "vmail" ( http://wiki.dovecot.org/VirtualUsers 
), and which I have used in my own implementation.

This is purely a configuration option and is not required to build the 
Dovecot package. But it seems to me it is a common enough use case and 
that having an SBo assigned uid/gid for "vmail" would dovetail nicely 
with the dovecot docs and simplify virtual mail setup for those building 
with SBo scripts. It would also simplify my Slackdocs article.

So, please consider this a request for either discussion or simply for 
an assigned uid/gid for a vmail user.
