Row iduid

this is a readonly column which will be filled once you save the test table (so you can refer to it from another place).

the unique id contains out of two parts a counter (roughly the line number) and the revision number in which the id was created.

whenever you modify/move a row with a unique id, the revision number is updated while the counter part stays the same.
