I am torn on this one. When you have a file A on the filesystem,
the object name of the blob that records the contents of that file
is *not* the same as output from "sha1sum A".
I doubt we should spell out _how_ it is computed. In the glossary,
it is better to say what it is and what it is used for; the tutorial
and Documentation/technical/ give better details that the readers
who refer to the glossary do not need.
The unique identifier of an <<def_object,object>>. The
object name is usually represented by a 40 character
hexadecimal string. Also colloquially called
might be sufficient.

We should spell it as "SHA-1" with a dash.
