Subject: [gentoo-user] usernames starting w/ digit

Hi folks,


while migrating stuff to an fresh Gentoo box, I've recognized 
that useradd doesn't accept usernames starting with a digit
(while manually changing in passwd still seems to work fine).

Why does Gentoo's useradd doesnt accept usernames starting 
digits, while other distros do ?
