I don't see any problems with this. I'll commit a new version of the
VersionFourGenerator. I'd missed applying a change I'd done earlier that
allows the PRNG class and package strings to be set & allows an option for
secure or normal random number generator to be used. Additionally, I'll
remove the singleton pattern from VersionFourGenerator.

Yes, singleton no longer makes sense here.

Yes, sounds good.

One additional item to keep in mind, we've discussed changing the UUID
implementation to match jdk 1.5 java.util.UUID.
I'll try to get this done soon, but just a heads-up about the changes
