A random number is looking like the best option.  I'm not sure why I'd
want to generate a perfectly good 128 bit random number and then throw
away six of the bits to dress it up as a UUID, though.  Do the
libraries for that do enough to introduce entropy to compensate for
the lost bits?  Any other benefit I'm missing?
