Hi all,

Just thought I'd run this one by the group...

You're probably familiar with the periodic script 
(/etc/periodic/weekly/340.noid) that reports on what files on a host that 
have an unknown user or group.  One annoyance I've found beyond the 
occasional tarball that unpacks with unused uids is that many times there 
are UIDs that exist in a jail but not on the main host.

For now we just threw a patch in there to skip the path that matches where 
we stash the jails.  Ideally I'd like to figure out a method that would 
not involve applying this everytime we see a change there in a mergemaster 

We brainstormed a bit and came up entry.  Anyone else faced with this tiny
