Yes that is the UUID that I am talking about.  You are right that you 
can't use the same UUID for two *registered guests but I often do this 
and register the one I want at the time.  I suppose it is not needed as 
much by the masses since it is more of a backup of the original. I can 
continue to use 3rd party for this.
