Quite.  I will *not* go along with any proposal that requires me to
duplicate some hashing logic being done elsewhere.  Way too much risk
of error there.

Yeah, anything like this would be going very very far out of our way to
keep these lines in commit messages under an arbitrary limit (which we're
already exceeding anyway in many cases).  I'm inclined to think we should
just straight up decide that having the message link be a clickable URL is
worth the longer lines, or that it is not.  Personally I vote for "not",
but I recognize that I might be in the minority.

BTW, before we give up completely on reconciling the two objectives,
is anyone aware of a line-continuation convention that would be likely
to work?  If we could do something like


it would improve matters all around.
