In Lyceum a blog admin can change their blog's url 'slug' at any time
And when they do so, the old slug is up for grabs, therefore introducting
the potential for GUID collision between blogs. That's why I was wondering
what WP (and maybe plugins?) use GUIDs for, becaue maybe GUID namespace
collison between blogs never matters anyway?
