You have to arrange a mechanism yourself.  Create an object that
contains the last number used, etc... and increment that.  Or other
people simply pick a random number and test to see if it has been used. 
Probably something that is really best handled via some platform neutral
rpc method like XML-RPC or maybe even a simple http-get.
