A fine choice. Also, BEEF ;-)

What I do is assume that nobody configures the UIDs and therefore in
the .config file I ship with every xAPplication, I assign it its own
UID that doesn't conflict with any other xFx-based xAPplication. Could
easily conflict with somebody else, but provides a reasonable default.

The xAP Message Viewer will highlight UID conflicts visually in the
xAP nodes tree on its display. It separates conflicts out by port
number IIRC, if possible. Internally it does use UIDs but also matches
on source address, and port if it's available in the message packet,
in order to get the right node.
