I often use an 'identifier' integer-wrapper which supports incrementing
(pre- and post-), equality-comparison, conversion to and from string,
and serialization (and conversion to and from the underlying integers
for when you really have to). In particular I'd encourage you to
support serialization if you hadn't thought of that yet.
