Don't like the hashing idea because that would be useless for searching,
eg, one's own local mail archives.  Also, if you are looking at a message
in your own mail store when composing a commit message (which I generally
am, don't know about other committers) how are you going to get the hash?
I think it's important to have the message-ID in cleartext.

AFAICS the proposal here is to go from, eg,

Discussion: <>



which is annoying, but the line was overlength already.  Maybe we could
drop the Discussion: prefix and just write a URL:

That's still overlength for gmail message-IDs, though, so I'm not sure
it's worth losing the label for.
