The ID really just needs to be a unique IRI, which is a variant of  
the URI.  The urn:uuid is one of the ways to generate a unique ID,  
and it works better for use then the alternatives.  The previous  
version wasn't unique in all cases (multiple blogs on the same host  
with articles with the same title within a calendar year, IIRC),  
while this one is a lot easier, *and* it's valid for RSS and Atom, so  
we can keep the same UIDs no matter which feed we use.

I'd set the ActiveRecord default, and then verify that it isn't  
causing any obvious problems.
