Thanks to Nick and Maarten for their solutions. Both work very well. I
did not like this approach initially because of the loss of
information in mapping the ids to an integer, but that does not seem
like a big deal in hindsight.

Nick's distinction between unique and distinct finally makes sense too.

Have a lovely weekend.
