I've suffered from the wrong UID/GID thing for many years, mostly over NFS (And I liked the way that the non-kernel NFS server let you supply UID map). Just last week I found that all my backup files for a server that just died have the wrong UIDs (that'll be the new admin doing it wrong, but the point is that it's common) Anything that helps work round this is good IMHO.
