allow to find the original commit; for isntance, there's already the
find-commit-by-sha1 service at<commit-sha1-prefix>

which searches all repos hosted at for the given sha1
prefix; there's also a convenient text-entry field at which allows you to copy'n'paste any commit-ids
you might come across in emails, irc logs, trac comments or even commit

...does this lookup-service alleviate your concerns?
