Done.  Works like a charm.  Thanks for providing the code!

Happily, we have *the* ctypes guru here, and he's solved the problem
for Windows at least.

Yes, the idea was that even though _uuidgen isn't included with core
Python, users would magically benefit if they installed it (or if they
happen to be using Python in a distribution that includes it); it's
the same idea with the stuff that refers to Win32 extensions.  Is the
presence of _uuidgen sufficiently rare that i should leave out
uuidgen_getnode() for now, then?
