It depends on what hash you are talking about, as ~everything in git
is hashed. Most frequently, we are talking about a commit hash.

false, in a typical push case when you fast-forward your local branch,
the remote commit hash will stay the same. The commit hash will only
change if you change the commit's history, eg, if you rebase a branch
or cherry-pick a single commit.

that's why I don't see any reason to have expandable stuff. If CVS
user are not happy, too bad for them, I don't care.
