would like to see the uuid contrib added to postgres, or maybe an extra postgres-contrib package that will pull it in. note this would require the ossp uuid library also being added.
This task depends upon

If this package was in the repos already it would be easy, but I'll look into it in a future postgresql package release. Shouldn't be too bad to do; we can make it a makedepend and optdepend of the package so not everyone needs to install it.

With the next 9.4 release, a UUID generation function is available in core, making this hard-to-build module much less necessary. Closing in anticipation of that (and since this hasn't moved in 2 years).
