And CMDF is "Combined Miniaturized Defense Force", but we have no idea
what that really means without further explanation of the unconventional
use of "miniaturized". :-)
"GUID" is mostly used by Microsoft. In their RPC documentation in the
Platform SDK, they state that "GUID" and "UUID" are interchangeable terms.
They're used to uniquely name classes and interfaces (in the object sense,
for COM), interfaces in the networking sense, ADS objects, and loads of
other things I've not yet been able to characterize.
So, if slapd is supplying a UUID for each object instance in the
directory, that should serve.
Further discussion of GUIDs/UUIDs in general should probably take place
