entryUUID (Was: Using third party code - copyright issues?)

A change of subject seems in order...

My initial concern with moving entryUUID generation out of
the frontend was that it might make implementation of manageDIT
capabilities a bit harder.

Another concern would be to ensure that UUIDs generated for
entries are "reasonably unique".... and, for that, I have some
concerns with the use of uuid_create_from_name().  What were
you thinking of using as a name?  Is it "reasonable unique"?

I'm not concerned about moving entryUUID generation/handling out of the frontend; I need a means to create repeatable and "reasonably unique" entryUUID values from other unique data, something like the uuid_create_from_name() in <http://www.watersprings.org/pub/id/draft-leach-uuids-guids-01.txt>.  I want to put it in the module where I plan to use it because I'm not sure it would be of general usefulness, but if it does, liblutil will likely be the most appropriate place.
