For what it's worth, I use the doomdark UUID java classes under Windows
and linux with jaybird JDBC, storing the UUID as a CHAR (36) with
character set none (the leading and trailing braces that Micro$oft is so
fond of are not produced by the doomdark classes so the text
representation is two bytes shorter).

When integrated with an easy to write Hibernate Persister class, this is
a seamless mechanism that is completely transparent to my application
software and is portable across any DBMS.
