Hi @mateusz ,

I would see that in the same category as the caveat I've described in the post. Having an auto-incremented ID as a key would provide you a much more efficient solution that trying to wrap the strategy around a UUID.

It would be possible to use a workaround solution using a created_at in combination with a UUID, but I would highly advise against that, as for the performance hit you will be having, you would be much better sorting by ID.
