/ Richard Tobin <richard@inf.ed.ac.uk> was heard to say:
| Um.  Having one implementation where you can rely on that doesn't seem
| very useful: people will write pipelines that work in your
| implementation and then find they don't work in others.  It's like
| relying on argument evaluation order, or how a++ + a++ comes out in a

| documents it should either be required or there should be a switch to
| guarantee it.

So what do folks think? Sequential numbers, some guarantee of global
uniqueness, or implementation defined?

                              | remarkable persons forgot, than any
                              | that stand remembered in the known
                              | account of time.--Sir Thomas Browne
