To save others checking the provided code: Microsoft's GUID class
(which it also calls a UUID) stores the internal values as uint32_t,
uint16_t, uint16_t, uint8_t in native -- little-endian -- byte
order, so the first 3 members need byte order reversing to match the
in-memory format specified by the RFC.
