There was a nice thread recently on how MIDI SYSEX id should be defined
and the same issue applies here. If you take system ID to be unique, which
it is supposed to be, then there is no reason why an app should not use this
ID for MIDI and for session management. Again, this does require hijacking 
a MIDI sysex but at the discussion went, if it is under command line control
and it is taken to be the UUID you do end up with two birds and one stone.
