I can only imagine this causing much confusion. Is this still the
posix username, just contining digits, or the kernel UID number?
The posix username just containing digits might work, but many parts of
linux assuming numeric usernames are uid valies, eg in config files).
When I went to uni (ANU in Canberra), they gave us logins with our
student number, but always s123456 (later u123456), but never without a
prefix. I always suggest learning from the practice of others rather
than being the special case.
