Or if we find that really unclean, then abstract one key portion of
the uuid code and keep it in APR, but put all the uuid interfaces
(wrappers around that key portion) into apr-util, which can depend on
apr for platform-specific stuff.

So then apr-util is the official provider of uuid functionality, but
depends on apr to implement it.
