Guid stands for 'globally unique ID', with emphasis on the word global. 
The recipe shows the guid hard-coded because that really is the right way
to do it.  A Guid is a promise that any object with this clsid conforms to
the same interface as every other object with that guid, on any machine,
anywhere in the universe.

It's perfectly ok to 'print pythoncom.CreateGuid()' in an interactive
browser and paste that into your _reg_clsid_.
