sequential PROC_INST_ID_

Hi,

  Does somebody know how the PROC_INST_ID is generated? Is there a sequence in the database?
It seems so, that the activiti process engine has one global number which grows with every instance of an element (process, task, gateway, …).
My application users are familiar with numbers between 1 and 99999  talk about the corresponding instance, but the PROC_INST_ID grows very fast over the 5 digits edge and then it is to hard to remember the number for shouting it over the corridor or use it in a telephone conversation.
How can I implement my own number mechanism in the activiti engine?

Thanks for the help in advance.
