  Description     : fast random UUID generator using the Mersenne Twister algorithm

Data::UUID::MT provides a UUID generator uses the excellent
Math::Random::MT::Auto module as a source of fast, high-quality (pseudo)
random numbers.

Three different types of UUIDs are supported. Two are consistent with RFC
4122 and one is a custom variant that provides a 'sequential UUID' that can
be advantageous when used as a primary database key.

Note: The Mersenne Twister pseudo-random number generator has excellent
statistical properties, but it is not considered cryptographically secure.
Pseudo-random UUIDs are not recommended for use as security authentication
tokens in cookies or other user-visible session identifiers.

The package will be maintained under the umbrella of the Debian Perl Group.
