Storing pids

It's not worthless if I'm just using it for tracking. All I want to  
do in the end is say "give me all the entries from this process" and  
supply the process id.

If erlang:phash2 gives a unique number for each pid then maybe I can  
use pid hashes to identify processes in the disk log instead of the  
pids themselves.

What do you think?
