Anything that gets rid of the awful hack used for the instance mapping code would be welcome. Storing a marker in the table is terrible, and then munging a UUID to be a not-UUID is even worse. My cleanup at least got rid of the second hack, but I would have preferred to fix the whole thing by not storing the marker in the first place.
