create pywintypes.CreateGuid() compatible guids on Linux ?

P: n/a
Hello,

I created lots of guids via pywintypes.CreateGuid() on windows.

Now I would like to run the same software on Linux / Solaris /
FreeBSD.

So I should produce "compatible" GUIDS on that systems. "compatible"
having the meaining: "Providing similiar likelehood of collisions".

of course "google python guid" leads directly to
http://aspn.activestate.com/ASPN/Coo.../Recipe/163604,
but ... will it blend?

any ideas what could help me to research?

The uuid module, in Python 2.5 and up, provides RFC compliant UUID
generation. See the module docs and the RFC for details.
