Re: GUID Generation

I’ve been looking at the following recipe for generating a GUID
http://code.activestate.com/recipes/163604/ however I note that its
about 6 years old. Has python since adopted an internal module for GUID
generation? Or is this 3^rd part module still the best option?
Not only is the answer, Yes:

http://docs.python.org/lib/module-uuid.html

but it's just featured as Doug Hellmann's module of the Week:

Is it possible to generate a 20 byte integer from a GUID that is "unique enough" ( just like a GUID is not truly unique , but is "unique enough" ). We identify transactions with GUIDs , but a partner web service has a 20 byte limit on transaction ID passed.

Has anyone tried using inet or cidr for storing GUID (or for storing 128bit numbers or hashes or similar stuffs)? It has a nice property in that one can use hexadecimal notation (like 'FEDC:BA98:7654:3210:FEDC:BA98:7654:3210') when inserting it. Plus IPv6 is 128bit too. -- dave
