UUID type

I think it would be beneficial to have explicit support for UUID type (like Postgres).

NuoDB would be able to encode UUID into a more optimal/smaller value than a varchar.  Some clients might client side encode as BINARY(16) but many won't storing as a VARCHAR(40).

At scale have an explicit UUID could be better/smaller and often is part of a unique index so could in practical terms we get the benefit twice (table and index).
