account UUIDs patch, v1

This is analogous to bug 448199 for nsIMsgIdentity.

Dmose, are you still working on this?

Standard8, rkent, would this be even accepted? It looks like it would be needed for Sync feature for TB that we discussed recently.

Same issue as bug 448199 (that is, yes this is good). Could be even more important for account.
Note for the record that Sync likes 12-character GUIDs.

Future work might allow for transparent hashing of existing identifiers, rather than computing a new GUID: Bug 824188.

Anyone feel like picking this up? Seems all it requires is a review by someone competent (which unfortunately isn't me).
