The documentation appears to agree with the code: some numbers can be
conses, but uid/gid cannot.

I think I'll use -1 -- that's what Ange-FTP does.  Emacs is kind
enough to return -1 when parsing a too-large number already, so now I
only have to do a fix for XEmacs.  For that, I'll have to talk to some
other people, though :-)
