There is a windows API call to generate GUID's, which are unique and I 
assume are the same as uuids. I used to know what this was, but I have 
forgotten now:) I don't know if emacs lisp can call the windows API, but 
somewhere I should have a small command line app that enerates GUIDs and 
outputs them to stdout.
