I thought of the same smiley here... ;-)

Exactly. UUIDs are (I believe) very common in messaging settings, and
are used to identify nodes, messages, etc. Having one way of generating
them, that works the same way across all bindings, would be useful, in
my opinion.

Perhaps we could have zmq_util_XXX() functions and/or a zmq::util
namespace where UUID functions (as well as the timer and sleeping
functions, and perhaps the version function) are stashed.
