I think that if Debian wants to allocate uids/gids statically, we have a
system for that, and adduser isn't it.  If a sysadmin wants to do the
same locally, adduser isn't the right tool for the job.  You need to be
looking at directory services of some type (ldap/nis/etc).  If a user is
in your directory service, adduser won't add another user of the same
name locally.
