The right way of doing this is to make the notebook UUIDs persistent
when the server restarts.  That will only require storing them on disk
somewhere and they reading them back in at restart.  This is not hard,
but we would need to decide if we wanted to use a hidden flat file or
a database, etc.  Let's fix it this way and not with hacks.  The right
way will not be any more work.
