What about adding adding a method to StringIdentifierGenerator to deal with StringBuffers?

StringBuffer nextIdentifier(StringBuffer buffer);

The implementation should append the next identifier to the buffer and return it. This would
make the concatenation more efficient and may be also useful for other use cases where the
returned id is added to a String.
