Thanks for the analysis.
As mentioned in my previous reply I am working on getting the proper
CPAN Data::UUID in Debian, so would be great if you could similarly take
a look at that.
...and also non-Perl UUID generators (Perl modules are not currently in
use for FreedomBox specifically, but may be in the future, e.g. for
serving and/or processing semantic knowledge).
