Ahh..... these are taken from the user & groups in the OS, and the OS has NO limit on this, so UID is only uniqe within each part: Users & Groups.
There is nothing stopping you from having a 'admin' user AND a 'admin' group.
Actually, OS X does this aaaaallllll.. the time!

>> Question: guids in the accounts.xml configuration file are globally unique, ok. But what about the uids? Do group and user uids use the same "name space"? Can there be a group with uid "admin" and a user with uid "admin"? I was not able to find any docu about this.
