Re-exported predicates

The following predicates are exported from this file while their implementation is defined in imported modules or non-module files loaded by this module.

Source reset_gensym
Reset gensym for all registered keys. This predicate is available for compatibility only. New code is strongly advised to avoid the use of reset_gensym or at least to reset only the keys used by your program to avoid unexpected side effects on other components.
Source reset_gensym(+Base)
Restart generation of identifiers from Base at <Base>1. Used to make sure a program produces the same results on subsequent runs. Use with care.
Source gensym(+Base, -Unique)
Generate <Base>1, <Base>2, etc atoms on each subsequent call. Note that there is nothing that prevents other parts of the application to `invent' the same identifier. The predicate gensym/2 is thread-safe in the sense that two threads generating identifiers from the same Base will never generate the same identifier.

- uuid/1, term_hash/2, variant_sha1/2 may be used to generate various unique or content-based identifiers safely.
