comment Is it Considered Good SQL practice to use GUID to link multiple tables to same Id field?
I was assuming longs which is half the size of a guid, but still, it's a very reasonable key size and isn't a problem for most systems. I have worked with many DBs keyed off guids and it's really not a big deal.
