 * \brief Class for generating unique UID
 * \note bla
 * Usage:
 * When constructing a Series or Study UID, user *has* to keep around the UID,
 * otherwise the UID Generator will simply forget the value and create a new UID.
00030 class GDCM_EXPORT UIDGenerator
  /// By default the root of a UID is a GDCM Root...
00034   UIDGenerator():Unique() {}

  // Function to override the GDCM root with a user one:
  // WARNING: This need to be a valid root, otherwise call will fail
  // Implementation note. According to DICOM standard PS 3.5, Section 9 :
  // Unique Identifiers (UIDs), we have:
  The <org root> portion of the UID uniquely identifies an organization, (i.e., manufacturer, research
  organization, NEMA, etc.), and is composed of a number of numeric components as defined by ISO 8824.
  The <suffix> portion of the UID is also composed of a number of numeric components, and shall be
  unique within the scope of the <org root>. This implies that the organization identified in the <org root> is
  responsible for guaranteeing <suffix> uniqueness by providing registration policies. These policies shall
  guarantee <suffix> uniqueness for all UID's created by that organization. Unlike the <org root>, which may
  be common for UID's in an organization, the <suffix> shall take different unique values between different
  UID's that identify different objects.
  /// The current implementation in GDCM make use of the UUID implementation (RFC 4122) and has been
  /// successfully been tested for a root of size 26 bytes. Any longer root should work (the ::Generate() 
  /// function will return a string), but will truncate the high bits of the 128bits UUID until the 
  /// generated string fits on 64 bits. The authors disclaims any 
  /// responsabitlity for garanteeing uniqueness of UIDs when the root is longer than 26 bytes.

  /// In summary do not write code like that:
  /// const char *uid1 = uid.Generate();
  /// const char *uid2 = uid.Generate();
  /// since uid1 == uid2
