Multiple uid-0 accounts are no problem; we have a number of systems set up
that way ("root" is for the administrators, "lroot" for the users who need
root --- adding exokernels to LILO, mainly).
There used to be some hassles porting software to Zilog boxes which called
their superusers "zeus", back when companies thought it would be neat to
call the superusers in *their* Unix-derived systems something else.
