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.
