  Description     : simple SQL92 ID generator

This module is intended to give easier portability to Perl database application
by providing a database independant unique ID generator. This way, an
application developer is not bound to use his database's SEQUENCE or
auto_increment thus making his application portable on multiple database

This module implements a simple Spin Locker mechanism and is garanteed to
return a unique value every time it is called, even with concurrent processes.
It uses your database for its state storage with ANSI SQL92 compliant SQL. All
SQL queries inside DBIx::Sequence are pre cached and very efficient especially
under mod_perl.
