Ah, thanks!  scsh (set-user-effective-uid 1000) works as expected.

The setuid() function sets the real and effective user IDs and the saved
set-user-ID of the current process to the specified value.

There's a separate seteuid() syscall (note the "e") to set only the
effective user ID.

Ditto for setgid() and setegid().
