Migration of UNIQUEIDENTIFIER field

I am migrating MS SQL server database to MySQL. I have a UNIQUEIDENTIFIER field in almost every table. I do not see any UNIQUEIDENTIFIER data type in MySql (which in my opinion would be nice to have). I can change that field to VARCHAR type and then manaually enter that field's values instead of MS's handy NEWID() function.
Is there any other approach that you guys can suggest other than using INT type field?
