I would suggest to use a name which could be traced back to the real user
who changed the data in case of problems. F.e. one could use something
like user_on_pc_035 or so. This way the admin would just have to setup a
limited number of accounts in /etc/passwd (well, one for every computer),
but he would be able to find out who has changed data by looking at who
was logged on at this time on PC 35 when something happened. Well, I don't
know how to set this up though. Maybe a "force user = user_on_%m" for the
share(s) would do the trick?
