This account is used by sys-apps/dbus.

I picked 101 because it is the ID that enewuser happened to assign on
my system 10+ years ago. It also happens to land right next to another
freedesktop project polkitd/102.

Other distros name the account differently (dbus), and use an ID that
conflicts with a previous Gentoo assignment (81/apache).
