Adds a random string to XML element IDs

This is a feature request to add a random string to the IDs used in SVG output.
 The goal is to be able to use several images in the same parent XML document
without having conflicting element IDs.  My current use-case is having multiple
plots etc. generated by Cairo/R included throughout mathematical documents
written in XML-based languages.

Attached is a quick patch I made that is little more than tweaked pattern
replacement, but has the intended effect to illustrate my request.  (It most
likely needs to be retouched by someone familiar with the source.)
