I don't think this will work very well, but if I were to take a stab I
might look at hacking the source and removing the sequence from the
database for the user id field. Then change the admin interface to
create users and put in a field for setting the id. You can then use
the same "string" for the id and the name (username) field. There are
a truckload of issues with this, namely when new users need to be auto
created (like email coming into the system) that will blow up.

Good luck!
