You get the same behavior as auto increment in for instance MySQL with this

I use it a lot in the VizReader code.

I'm not so sure I would've used it much though if I had know about the (id)

In my case it's all about displaying a nice id that is easy to relate for
humans and JavaScript in my non-traditional gui and as you can see both
approaches accomplish that but that latter is imo more elegant.
