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?
