Unique article ID?

Is there a way to get a unique ID per article? I would like to add the ability to talk to a Comment system (either my own, or YACCS) and, it would certainly be easier if there was some sort of ID I could uniquely identify an article with.

Thanks. I saw that, but, it's not what I want to do. I dont want these numbers dynamicly created when the page loads, but something assigned at compile time.

You can always just make up an ID.  Or use the filename, or a keyword, or whatever you want... but if you have to have a number, then you can only do it at run-time through javascript, unless you type a number into every article.

I guess ill manually create an ID and store it in the extras field.
