Also the strings must only be unique for a specific timeframe, but they don't say what the timeframe is. With a 10 character random string of alpha and numeric characters, the chances are slim we'll ever repeat a string, even without a timeframe.

This listing is for code that runs in the OPML Editor environment. I created these listings because I wanted the search engines to index it, so that when I want to look up something in my codebase I don't have to use the much slower search functionality in my object database. Dave Winer.
