An atomic count might not be sufficient as it would be unique only per
process. As I used Boost.Uuid only for convenience though I'll replace it
with an atomic count plus a random number to drop the dependency.


I have implemented a locally unique identifier that can be used interprocess
Do you think that something like that could be useful for your needs?
