Personally, I use names to identify my jails with a fixed identifier. This isn't
exactly what you asked for, but I prefer human readable labels over integers. I
use the following workaround/"hack":

export jail_www_flags="-n www -l -U root"

The interesting part here is obviously -n www, which assigns a name to the jail.
I then use it via jexec www csh or something similar.

I'm not sure this is the official or even intended way to do it, but it works
for me.
