Description

https://www.torproject.org/docs/tor-manual.html.en

User UID
On startup, setuid to this user and setgid to their primary group.

A UID is an integer in unix speak, not a username. The description of
the value uses "uid" correctly in the function names, but the option
should say "username" because that is the only value it supports.
