What is the best way to ensure that each document has a unique ID? I'm
currently looking at introducing a scheme whereby all the documents
produced by the company (including those written by developers) have a
unique ID, but I'm having difficulty working out how to ensure

Before I go reinventing the wheel (or a clumsy variant thereof with many
bumpy corners), what methods do other people use?
