  The goal was to allow searching by name or uuid (or both), that was the
principle of the API, unfortunately UUID search was not implemented. The right
fix is to add the lookup by UUID, as the TODO below indicated

  /* TODO search by UUID first as they are better differenciators */

changing the API instead is not the right approach. In a nutshell I
disagree with the patch, it does do the right thing.
