This is unfortunate and reminded me this exchange:

A platform-specific random generator would apparently be far more efficient
(I say apparently because I didn't know there were platform-specific
uuid generation until I read this tweet).

I reminded this with the fix discussion and made the ticket marked as
feature request:

I'm taking note to try a patch but don't hold your breath.
Also, would there be any benefit in having another typedef in C++11 mode
which would use the std mersene twister instead of the boost one?
