These just expand to a string not a number on which one could do some
The only macro that is usable is __LINE__ and when compiling constant
expressions sizeof can be used, but these provide only a very low
In other words I haven't found a way to do this either although it
would be really easy to add a built in uuid macro to the preprocessor
but no one seems to have done that.
