Use /etc/login.defs to define a 'system' account instead of hard-coding 500? (httpd)

We plan to change the boundary, making it configurable in /etc/login.defs; see https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/1000SystemAccounts .
Please consider changing suexec to parse this file instead of having the boundary compiled-in. (If parsing /etc/login.defs is not an option, it would probably be best to keep the boundary at 500 and not raise it to 1000; raising it would break upgrades.)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
See attachment 510191 [details] for the proper way to parse /etc/login.defs.
Per our e-mail discussion, the boundary will remain at 500.
