and then others will argue that they don't want that space polluted by
random numbers... (i'm personnaly encoding IPs in the PVID and let the

it's simple, if your using the GUI, just enter a random number (maybe
c&p from a rnd generator).

if your using an api call, just let your caller generate a random
number.
