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?
