I'm just curious, but why aren't those features included in the Windows version in order to prevent platform-dependent development in that direction? The same Postgres version now essentially provides different features depending on the platform.
I understand now that you just want to provide the facilities for UUID handling (datatype). You have to agree that a function to create a v4 UUID based on a randomly generated number (see MySQL: UUID()) would be useful though.
