That's actually a great point. Many of us develop off 'test urls', which in
cases could end up being NOT unique when the site is 'published'. This then
gets into going through the database and changing all the guids. Maybe
having an (advanced) override option for the guid 'prefix' would help in
those cases -- even if it was a PHP variable with no interface (given that
this is for >real< dev types!).
