Hi Michael,

for sorry I didn't find any counterparts of the respective commands on
the remote host. I investigated /etc/passwd and see that all users which
I need (for login or file modifications) has 0 uid and 0 guid. So all
users which I need are roots. All files on the remote host belongs to

So, the following commands could return such values:

> # id -u


> # id -un

a) Client's username (on remote host there are such usernames as
usernames on client hosts from which I will be used Tramp) 

b) 'testuser' (there is such 'test' username on the remote host).  

c) Hmmm... Or it can be just a 'root'?..

'testuser' -- seems will be suitable enough.

Could these values be used by Tramp as constants? In other case I could just
create a little bash script which will return all these values. However
seems constants is more preferable as in case of script I'll be needed
to always upload it on the remote host.
