It should also follow an rfc822 email-address format. i.e. local domain
Otherwise, it can be any string, it doesn't have to be the hostname/time, it just needs to be unique for that user.

The uid just needs to be unique or a 1 in a trillion duplicate shot
anyhow. The algorithm we use is iso time, pid, gid, ppid, a serial
number for the the program's run and the hostname.
