I remember once doing this with ps. I had to read between the lines in
the man page, and was able to specify the extra fields to display, for
the set of {real,effective,?} {user,group} ids. I put the ? there, as I
thought there was something else, but can't remember right now.

Looking at the man page right now and I can't work out how I did it. I
will investigate further tomorrow.
