Now that I've got a better grasp on the why's of each option, I think
I'm liking your idea just fine. I think the real resistance was to
making an ini setting for it.

I wonder if there's a way to get roughly ascending uuids (v1-ish)
without the security issues that come from having the originating node
permanently inscribed on each document...
