 I asked this at the GitHub project
 ([https://github.com/django/djangoproject.com/issues/934]) and was
 redirected here: the default Django User id field exists and is used a lot
 (as far as questions on Stack Overflow and example projects I can find
 go), but I can't find any documentation on it apart from the fact, that it
 is set "None" for Anonymous Users. @frankwiles told me on GitHub that the
 reason might be that all models have the "id" field by default, but I
 couldn't find a source that this is the reason why it isn't mentioned in
 the docs.

 I believe it is ok to use it, if not it should be added to the
 documentation as a warning or similar text. If it is ok to use it, why not
 write it down? It would help people like me (pretty new to Django) to
 quickly find how to use unique user ids, maybe there are even some custom
 settings most people don't know about.
