What about leaving ‘setuid’ and ‘setgid’ undefined, as was the case
until now?

‘getuid’ and ‘getgid’ could either be undefined or return a “random”
value; the latter only makes sense if in practice it helps run useful
code without any observable difference, though I’m unsure whether such
code exists.

Anyway, I think we shouldn’t lose our hair over this problem; I’m
grateful Eli did all this work porting Guile to MinGW, and that is what
matters most.
