Well, I use an static double integer (64 bit).  I simply increment it every time I created 
an object.  On boot up, I save the highest object number loaded.
I've seen servers which recalculate all the object numbers at a reboot to recover
the holes.  I don't do this as of yet.

BTW Does anyone know how to create a "magic number" from any given size
block of memory?
