It looks OK to me, except that it may be a little more optimized
for speed since GUIDs are CPU-expensive to begin with.
A couple of questions, wrt FPC v2.x:
-- Is Int64 supported in all platforms?
-- Is there a Int128 or something like it?
When Windows was 32bit, Delphi had Int64; it's only natural
that now we should have Int128 :-)
-- GUID unit being in extra/uuid/, does it mean it will not
be available in, say, Windows since Windows has a native
call for that.
Personally, I'd like 'OnCreateGUID : TCreateGUIDFunc = Nil;
to be available in all platforms.
