May I argue that the Age code I propose on this topic fixes that problem?
Since it is an age, there is no chance that in the future the code will
repeat itself.

The truncated 7 letters of the SHA may happen to repeat (although the
probability is possibly very low)

Just a correction to my previous email: in ten years the core would be
4085.31260 which is easily distinguished from the current builds which are
around 414.91491
