It might have been you, but it's not that thread. I'm referring to
some discussion a few months ago when I asked for testing the new

The question would be: What's the problem with the long list from id?
Enumerating the builtin accounts is very fast and you shouldn't have
any downside. On the upside, *iff* there are files owned by some
account not listed in /etc/passwd or /etc/group, the additional "db"
setting would still allow to show the ownership correctly...
