I agree about splitting the utilities, except that I think the database
should be able to generate UUIDs somehow.

There is a GUID add-in, and someone is working on a 2nd one. UUIDs are not part of the SQL standard, and we've only seen sporadic demand for them (and different types each time) so I can't imagine one making it further than contrib real soon.

Also, one could argue that UUIDs are a foot gun, so they're not exactly the type of thing we want to advocate in advance of demand.
