Feature request: GM_windowUUID()

Reported by zup | December 12th, 2011 @ 02:38 PM | in v0.3

Please add a function to get a unique ID for the window. It would be useful when a user script runs in multiple windows and complex tasks involve navigation to other pages. With a function like this, we could get the same id on subsequent pages, and use it as a prefix in GM_[sg]etValue's key, thereby store data per window easily.
(GM storage itself is per user script (afaik) and using sessionStorage can be detected by the content script. Passing a UUID undetectable from page to page is complicated)
