Workflow::Persister::UUID - Persister to generate Universally Unique Identifiers
<persister name="MyPersister" use_uuid="yes" ...
Implementation for any persister to generate a UUID/GUID ID string. The resulting string is 36 characters long and, according to the implementation docs, "is guaranteed to be different from all other UUIDs/GUIDs generated until 3400 CE."
This uses the Data::UUID module to generate the UUID string, so look there if you are curious about the algorithm, efficiency, etc.
