I don’t know why your proposal was rejected or why you didn’t get any
I like how you believe in your idea, and indeed – the current GUID scheme
needs some improvements.
You will face some very interesting challenges. Probably most important:
- backwards compatibility
- current misuse of GUIDs as public URLs in some plugins and even in core
- import and export of databases
I don’t have the time for a real mentoring, but if you need someone to
talk about the project and your ideas or for code reviews, you can contact
me off list.
