Perhaps I misunderstood. My reading was that none of the proposed approaches were complete enough (in the sense they either introduced other issues or, while addressing some corner cases, made it much harder to address others, broke or failed to cater for other workflows). I was left with the general impression that solving this issue required a significant amount of re-development and a far more sophisticated approach for tracking, caching/memoizing IDs and attempting to address the issues just by patching the existing code was only going to make small improvements while complicating the existing code and making it harder to maintain. In short, a significant re-design and re-implementation effort rather than application of patches on the existing code base is required and until someone can do this work, the best approach was to use publish instead of export if link stability was required. -- Tim Cross
