I think that sounds good, for the version 4 (random bytes) uuid (I think
that's what you meant? - version 1 uses MD5 of system info or the MAC

The other calls to SecureRandom should be changed now that I understand more
about Random randomness.
I can send patches if or unless anyone wants to beat me to it.
