Returns an almost unique reference.

The returned reference will reoccur after approximately 2^82 calls; therefore it is unique enough for most practical purposes.

could this function a base for a better non cryptographic  random generator ?
phash2 on such make_ref() value does not help with 2^32 cycle...
