I'm sure you know this, but in case someone else doesn't: the Data::UUID
provided by Debian is actually libossd-uuid-perl for licensing reasons. So
when those docs refer to Data::UUID, they are talking about the module from
CPAN, not from Debian.
Also, I recall Debian carries at least one patch to bring the OSSD
implementation into line with the "real" Data::UUID, but this shouldn't
affect MAC addresses.
