Is this done in a dbus-specific hash table or by the Windows API? If 
we're keeping a dbus hash table anyway, then we could do it _exactly_ 
like GQuark ... which would give us an integer that could simply be 
stuffed in dbus_uid_t as it stands, without having to change anything.

Any idea what the windows API calls involved are here so I can read the 
docs on those?
