Since you're using Python, have you played with uuid.uuid1 function?
It produce semi-sequential host-based uuids. To make them really
sequential, probably you'd like to reverse uuid value because his
"head" changes often than "tail". This trick could be cheaper that
implementing erlang-friendly base64 encoding.
