 I think that where possible, we should use sysusers on a systemd system and
_USERS on a non-systemd system. Perhaps the _USERS infrastructure should be
extended to do this automatically - AFAIK there is no advantage of using a
static user when you use systemd, right? Except of course when the package
requires one specific UID, but IIRC even that can be encoded in the sysusers
configuration, no?
