Johan: I seem to have missed your previous email (fat-fingered something
on my mail client I expect).
Your **reasons** for making it optional are all wrong. People like me
(and David) who are opposed to this run the risk that if the **format**
were to officially change in some way or for some reason (like, say, if
SHA1 is no longer in favour, or whatever), then this "feature" is
foisted on us willy-nilly.
That's not good.
So, while I appreciate your point that it should be optional, please
let's accept that in the end it should be optional because **not
everyone likes it**!
Personally, I am _strongly_ opposed. How I name and juggle my private
branches is nobody else's business in a distributed version control
They are private. My personal workflow. Not part of a commit.
