Nowhere, and in fact the string method is the commoner implementation,
there are a number of implementations which do not support a function

uniqueID is very useful, I to use it all the time for patterns such as
your hashtable of objects.   I certainly support the idea, and with
the strong issues that closures of DOM objects have in IE, it's even
more valuable.  It's certainly a pattern I would rather encourage in
the dabblers who are always on the team.
