You could see if uuidgen is available, and if not, fallback to an online uuid generator:

Sending a post request to that URL shouldn't be too hard. And you can extract the UUID from the first <h3> element on the page.

I would separate the code responsible for extraction for retrieval, that way if the page format, url, or post vars change, it will be easy to update.

Subject: [Orgmode] Question to windows users

Hi Windows users,

is the command uuidgen usually available under windows?  I am  
to make this the default for ID generation because it works on the Mac
and under GNU/Linux.  But I would like to have a default that works on
all systems....
