I'm thinking about adding a UUID file in /var/db/pkg, for comparing
installed packages to binary packages. We already have BINPKGMD5,
but the problem with that is that the MD5 of a binary package
changes when it's updated for package moves. A UUID would be
assigned at build time and remain constant thereafter. We can use
python's uuid.uuid4() function to generate a random UUID. Any
suggestions for alternative approaches?
