I understand your opinion. My solution was a easier way to make your
proposition about `git log --oneline`, because I don't want to copy these
6 numbers by hand. I'd prefer select the right line simply.

My solution is intended for people who just use git, and whatever their
environment (Unix, Windows...) because all is contained in git.

But I clearly agree that there is a lot of other solutions by using external
tools.  But IMHO, it is preferable that I just have to add a `-i' to a command
to make this choice simply, and not having to use my WM for this kind of task.

My real proposal is to integrate this way of choice into git instead of having
to use external tools, or writting the part of the sha1 by hand.

Thanks for answering, your answer confirms that this kind of tools is really
not wanted by everyone.

I will take a look at screen, it can be useful for a lot of thing. Thanks for
your advice.
