I have been almost ready to put a new version in the boost vault for awhile
now, but I have been having a bit of a problem with bjam (only because I don't
know it very well). I have put a new version in the boost vault anyway. It
has all the changes that have beed talked about and a platform independent
create() function (relies on random and date_time from boost), but it is not
thread safe yet. The code to make it thread safe is just commented out until I
can get bjam to link with the threads library (maybe you can give me a hand?).

I did look at your previous post. I should have replied earlier. I added a
function called byte_count() (unless you can think of a better name) that will
allow one to preallocate the output buffer, as follows.

boost::guid id;
std::vector<char> bytes(id.byte_count());

Thanks again for your interest and feedback, it has already made it a better
