[squeak-dev] How to intern UUIDs? :-)

The following line made me (somehow) expect to get the same instance of UUID as generated just before via "UUID new":

UUID fromString: '165fea06-1260-bf45-b6e2-43016456a4f8'.


Testing some object serialization (to/from Json) in combination with an IdentityKeyDictionary, I could not find the key, which is that UUID.


General question: Would UUID interning make sense? Could the UUID plugin do it? Do plugins have access to object memory?
