Before anybody spends time on the question in my preceding message:  
John Rawnsley has provided the answer off-list.

Namely, to get the list of user ids, use

	dscl localhost -list /Local/Default/Users UniqueID

and to get the list of group ids, use

	dscl localhost -list /Local/Default/Groups PrimaryGroupID

Many many thanks John, that's exactly what I was looking for.
