Why no UUID option for Collections with Bookshelf?

I’ve seen the other answer to this question: here

Something about “large architectural changes”, but for real. This should be a huge thing, it’s pretty common knowledge that sequential IDs are just plainly a bad idea (it’s also obviously solved for MongoDB). I feel like this stuff always comes up when I try to use Strapi for a proof of concept, last time it was complicated filter queries (I feel sick thinking about how that went).

Why is this not a priority? What would it take to implement this?

No hate on any of the dev team here, just always a bit aghast by relatively simple things left on the cutting board with this project.
