Yes, I think this makes sense. We had three different sha1 parsers:
get_sha1(), get_sha1_hex(), and get_extended_sha1().
None of the users of get_sha1() really have any reason to want the limited
form, so I think your patch does the right thing.
Now, for extra bonus points, maybe you should make "git-rev-list" also
understand the "rev..rev" format (which you can't do with just the
get_sha1() interface, since it expands into more).
Of course, most people don't tend to use git-rev-list directly, so maybe
that's not a biggie, and so git-rev-parse is fine.
