Fossil uses the term “UUID” as a short alias for “artifact hash” in its
internals. There are a few places where this leaks out into external
interfaces, which we cover in the sections below. Going forward, we
prefer one of the terms above in public interfaces instead.

Whether this short alias is correct is debateable.

One argument is that since "UUID" is an acronym for “Univerially Unique
Identifier,” and both SHA1 and SHA3-256 are larger and stronger than the
128-bit algorithms used by “proper” UUIDs, Fossil artifact hashes are
*more universally unique*. It is therefore quibbling to say that Fossil
UUIDs are not actually UUIDs. One wag suggested that Fossil artifact
hashes be called MUIDs: multiversally unique IDs.

The common counterargument is that the acronym “UUID” was created for [a
