             Summary: Make dependency on libuuid optional
                 Key: PROTON-902
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PROTON-902
             Project: Qpid Proton
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Flavio Percoco

The current proton-c version depends on libuuid for, well, generating uuids. 

The unfortunate thing of this dependency is that it's currently just required 
by the messenger and it's just being used for building the messengers name. 
It's really unfortunate to require this library and headers to be present for 
such a small case.

It'd be possible to make this dependency optional by adding a built-in uuid4 
generator that'd be enabled whenever libuuid is not around.
