  And we get back to my problem---I have a Lua UUID module [1] (right now
called 'org.conman.uuid') that supports more UUID types than just type 4 (it
supports types 1, 3, 4, and 5---check out RFC-4122 for details).  I'd like
to make it available.  What are my options?  I can't call it 'uuid' because
that's taken (at least twice).
