I am thinking that falling back to getpwuid(getuid()) is the most reasonable
approach, for the following reasons:

This fails when there are multiple users with the same uid as getpwuid()
will likely fetch the first matching entry. On FreeBSD (& May be other BSDs)
getlogin() is a syscall and works correctly without a controlling terminal.
But I was forgetting about Linux which never disappoints in disappointing.
I think use of $LOGNAME as a fallback may be good enough.
