Unlikely, if only because we use auto-incrementing ints as primary keys 
everywhere, and from what I remember clustered databases aren't terribly 
happy when you do that.

Off the top of my head I can't think of a reason why we couldn't just 
rip out all the integer ids and replace them with uuids assigned by the 
code say via Class::DBI::UUID, apart from that it would be a migration 
headache for existing users.
