I tried the same thing about 6 months ago and some programs went
completely banannas on me.  Seems some of the programs that depend on
UID and GID have a problem with 2 entries for the same UID/GID in the
passwd file.

If you figure out how to get it to work let me know.  I've been wanting
to do that for a long time with no success.
