When you said "intermediate character" I took it to mean a string 1567876931|11aca736-c9a9-4266-a2f6-13bd07202c09 or some such.

That’s what I meant. I wasn’t aware of the restrictions placed on UUIDds until now that I looked it up. I just thought it meant “universally unique”, which would be the case with my proposal, I think. So thanks. One more thing I learned.
