The OS API on windows creates time-based uuids (I don't know about other
OSs, but expect the same). The uuid::create() function creates
random-number-based uuids. I do not want to mix these.

In the future, I would like the uuid library to be able to create
time-based uuids. I believe that calling OS funtions is a good solution
for that.
