Hmm, I think http://xenbits.xensource.com/xen-unstable.hg can
reasonably be considered a canonical reference, and hence I would
assume that using the small number ids is uniquely identifying a c/s.
Furthermore, using the full ids doesn't allow easily judging how long
ago the referred to c/s was committed, including immediately knowing
which releases it may have been part of.
