At $MY_WORK, we never use Zip files, but indeed ran into some really nasty
performance bottlenecks in UUID, and cared enough to whine about it and
get it fixed ;)
While I doubt a single string allocation is make or break for us (by far the
bigger problem was the truly awful use of regex and tons of intermediate arrays)
but UUID is a core data type and people expect it to be reasonably performant.
