Doorstop and UIDs with names instead of numbers

Doorstop is the proposed tool to do the future requirements and 
specification management in RTEMS:

Each item (e.g. requirement) has an UID:

"The UID of an item is defined by its file name without the extension. 
An UID consists of two parts, the prefix and a number. The parts are 
divided by an optional separator. The prefix is determined by the 
document to which the item belongs. The number is automatically assigned 
by Doorstop."

These numbers turned out to be a bit painful to work with. I added a 
feature request to Doorstop to optionally use a name instead of a number:

It would be good to get a bit of support in this issue if you would like 
to avoid using hundreds of magic numbers in the future.
