I don't understand well this change.

What am I supposed to do with an UUID with safe=False? Should I loop on the function until I get safe==True?

"safe for multiprocessing applications"

Does it mean unique on the whole system?

I looked at uuid_generate_time_safe(3) manual page which mention "synchronization mechanisms (see above)" but they are not documented.

This issue was only fixed in Python 3.7. Does it mean that it's no more considered as as security vulnerability?
