Replace IPs with UUIDs

Recently, I have been making a large number of APIs, some of which need ratelimits for users. All the plugins I could find needed to use the user's IP. With repl.it, IPs are hidden to prevent IP grabbers. Now, this is good as a security precaution, but it should either: Be turned off for hackers, you can request it to be turned off for a specific repl, which will be verified or my final solution, replace them with a static UUID which is the same for each IP.

Thoughts?
