This is a tiny proof-of-concept banged out in an hour after a fun conversation with Mr. Justin George ( http://github.com/jaggederest ), who had the idea that an ordered list of words could function much better than a SHA1 (in terms of human memory, anyway) but could hold the same information. Sort of a look-up, with each word representing n-bits. It wouldn't need to be a SHA1, though; it could be arbitrary data. The initial idea, though, was that if you have a reliable mapping and you make sure that the reverse-mapping works across machines and versions of the library, then it could be a much easier to remember way to identify git commits. Could also work for IP addresses, SSH-keys, etc., so we're playing around to see if it's workable.
