__FILE__/__LINE__ combination is unique across multile TUs.

But it is AFAIK impossible to translate it into numeric value
(preprocessor sees string as one token)
and const char* cannot be used as template parameter.

Though you can name headers as hdr1.hpp, hdr2.hpp, ...
and extract the unique header number via
   __FILE__[sizeof(__FILE__) - 6]
hack to get its ASCII code.
