Comment (by Otto42):

 I think that the so-called replication problem with it basically means
 that if you do something like this:
 INSERT INTO whatever (guid) VALUES (UUID());

 And have that whatever table replicating, then the slaves will get
 different UUIDs than the master. The UUID function call is replicated over
 to the slaves, making them generate new UUIDs. If, however, you pull out a
 UUID and then treat it as a string instead, it works fine.

 Also, I think the ante should be upped to MySQL 4.1 anyway. But, it's
 entirely possible to create a UUID function in PHP, or just snag it from
 free code elsewhere, if the MySQL 4.0 support is such a big requirement.
