I think setreuid()/setregid() used to be a way to achieve what
seteuid()/setegid() can do, in that instead of using the saved ID to
restore the privileges (_POSIX_SAVED_IDS feature) one could use a
special syntax to swap real/effective IDs.
Meaning, setreuid()/setregid() is a legacy interface. I think. :-)
