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.
