I usually derive guard patterns from what I'm doing and force them  
odd by adding one to the last value if needed so they tend to be  
unique without resorting to a "central authority".  I think it's  
still obvious from the "all alpha" that it's a guard pattern.

enum guard_pattern {
     capture_engine = 0xcaeecaef,  // CApturE EnginE CApturF...
     stack_checker = 0xaccecead  // stACk ChECkEr stADk...
