I don't know what is correct by the standard, or what is correct to do
to ensure that all comilers will be able to compile it.

But, I included uuid.hpp (from that I just uploaded to the
vault) in two different complication units (and called some of the
templated functions). The templated functions do not have the inline
keyword and I don't get a complication error using visual studio .NET.
