Oops: I thought "uuid nil()" was a method of class uuid. So the class I
was talking about in 1) and 2) refer to class uuid.
As for 2), now I'm wondering why this particular function is a namespace
function and not a method (static) of class uuid? (I'll scrounge the
mailing lists for an answer in the mean time).
