BEEP is a standardized protocol (RFC 3340). Vortex couldn't make a  
change like that or it wouldn't be BEEP anymore.

If you want a unique GUID for each message, just create a UUID at the  
start of the connection, then for any given message concatenate its  
channel number and message number onto the UUID. But personally I  
think it's easier just to keep a per-connection dictionary whose keys  
are {channel,message} number pairs; then the client can store anything  
they want as the value.
