Why do you need a UID?
The autoincrement id we use in most tables can (should) serve as UID.
It needs a little care when sending the inserts, but it's
straighforward. It can easily be done by a layer on top of our db
classes (transparent to the application).
What table were you planning to partition (and how) that you can't use
the id for the partitioning?
Can we please spilt further discussions about this off to a new topic?
It has very little to do with the original discussion of this list
topic (the merging of your own code in our vcs'es)
