I kind of have two bugs going for the same thing; one is 6758 the other is 6508.

I've posted code that implements the calls using ctypes to
{get,set}res{uid,gid} in issue6758.  It's not quite done.

With regard to putting these calls into the standard library, I'm not
sure where they should go.  If I put them in os, which maps to
posixmodule.c, then I'll be adding non-POSIX calls to something
seemingly only for POSIX calls.

Also the code in there has a lot of conditional CPP logic and
interactions with the configure script.  So that could be a difficult
task to just jump into, since it has been a while since I dealt with
autoconf.

I really would like these routines exposed, but I don't know the best
way to do it and coudl use some guidance.
