template<> class persisted_pointer? Just kidding.

Generally like the [unique ID] idea. Have had some minor exposure to CORBA
it deals with the same issue pretty damn thoroughly. But CORBA is also
tackling a
bigger problem space - *persisted_pointer may be a dereference to an object
another machine that hasnt even been loaded yet. So maybe some extension to
current persistence stuff for a smaller problem space, is achievable and
Will keep gnawing on that 1.
