Sorry I didn't respond earlier.

Ditto, makes sense to me as well. It should be easy enough to do. I still
need to implement the version 3 uuid generation. Currently, we have version
1 and 4 (version 2 is reserved for backward compatibility.) The jdk 1.5
covers versions 3 and 4 (btw: thanks Noel, I hadn't seen this.)

I wanted to post a "next steps"/to-do to get any thoughts on it:
 1) Basic clean up. This is complete except the patches I'd sent caused some
issues due to eol:CRLF.
	Need to fix.

 2) Part of the patches I'd sent contained the option to indicate
	if Random or SecureRandom should be used in the version 4 generator.
	I will separate into a separate patch;
	or commit on my own depending on time-frames.

 3) Make the modification to mirror the jdk 1.5 api
	(return NotYetImplemented from the version 3 calls until (4))

 4) Create the version 3 implementation.

 5) As Phil indicated getting stability data from more and varied tests is
probably in order.
	I'm thinking I might set up a long running multi-client test just for
assurance sake.
	More unit tests.
	Performance data would be nice.

 6) ... any thoughts?
