I don't see any reason to have "get" in the name.  What we do need is the ability to get either the real or the effective uids/gids.

I don't think we exactly all agreed on it, and of course it violates the "don't vary from scsh any more than required" rule.  But ignoring that I think it would be an improvement ... except how far do we take it?  There are a lot of "getters" in this SRFI....

The draft still seems to have the old procedures:

- user-uid
- user-gid

instead of the new ones we discussed (and IIRC all agreed upon):

- (get-)user-real-uid
- (get-)user-real-gid
- (get-)user-effective-uid
- (get-)user-effective-gid

Were these lost in a sea of edits or is there a rationale for sticking
with the old ones after all?
