I just used the original name of the file, with a number added for
uniqueness if necessary (which is very seldom the case). =C2=A0It works and=
is much more human-friendly and straightforward than the above options.
A "make this path unique by sticking a number on the end of it" f=
turns out to be pretty useful anyway.
Of course, you need to actually check for existence of files to create
it, which might be a problem in some cases (though not any I've
encountered), but anything that assumes a mapping based on the current
path is a unique identifier for a particular file's contents is bound t=
fail anyway.This is exactly what I do in Non-DAW as w=
ell. Use the original name and add an ordinal number until it's unique.=
