    [BEAM-1347,BEAM-1348] Use strings for ids in Fn API

    Be sure to do all of the following to help us incorporate your contribution
    quickly and easily:
     - [x] Make sure the PR title is formatted like:
       `[BEAM-<Jira issue #>] Description of pull request`
     - [x] Make sure tests pass via `mvn clean verify`. (Even better, enable
           Travis-CI on your fork and ensure the whole test matrix passes).
     - [x] Replace `<Jira issue #>` in the title with the actual Jira issue
           number, if there is one.

    Currently the Fn API uses 64 bit integers pervasively for identifiers. This is acceptable
for performance-sensitive locations if it is known that performance is improved.
    The Runner API uses strings for identifiers, which is consistent with proto best practices
for extensibility and usability. And in the Runner API these two factors trump performance,
since it has negligibly low throughput requirements.
    Since the Fn API must transition to `FunctionSpec` and `Coder` from the Runner API (largely
the same, but more fleshed out) and we desire to also share `GraphNode`, I have done the brain-dead
automated thing to convert the identifiers to strings.
    In the Runner API many of these identifiers disappear anyhow, but conflating the unification
of the APIs with this conversion got a bit out of hand, so I'd like to do this first.
    I would like feedback from those more familiar with the harness about where this is known
to be a performance bottleneck.
