OS X Python - way to generate a UUID/GUID? - Mac Programming

Is there a Mac module available in the version of Python that ships with OS X (Panther - I think it is Python 2.3) that can be used to generate a GUID/UUID? I'm looking for a module that effectively calls CFUUIDCreate() internally. Is something like this available, or will I need to make my own Python shared library module?...

    Whoops - I just realized this is probably the wrong group for this
    question. Sorry!

    No idea about Python, but on Panther, there is (in /usr/bin) uuidgen that
    might do what you're looking for.
