I just sent an email about UNSIGNED INT for the database. This is a
separate (but related) question: Is there a reason why ticket IDs
can’t be CHAR(32)? I’d love to use a proper UUID as a ticket ID.
If I convert a UUID from hex (base 16) to alphanumeric (case
sensitive: base 62; case insensitive: base 36), I can use much less
space to store the UUID.
Anyone have any thoughts on that?
