Thank you.  Yes I see the User Identification section and read it from
your pointer... thanks for that too.

To add a further complication... If you wanted to pass a list of uids.

I get thoroughly confused where the parens go.

I tried a few possibilities.

  (when (= 1000 1001 (user-uid)) 
  (when (= (1000 1001) (user-uid)) 
  (when ((= 1000 1001) (user-uid))

As you can see, I'm just kind of shotgunning in the dark.

Looking at the section on lists in emacs-elisp-intro... doesn't really
help.  Seems to get quite complicated right away and if I use the
first basic example:

     '(rose
       violet
       daisy
       buttercup)

Like this:

  (when (= '(1000 1001) (user-uid)) 

or even another example from emacs-lisp-intro

 `'(this list has (a list inside of it))'

  (when (= '(1000 (1001)) (user-uid)) 

Well, those are wrong too.
