  • Schwern - This point from your previous post also helps to deflect some of that criticism:

    "For those who still don't get it, let's say there is a collision. What happens? We might lose a single commit. And then we report it."

    Even in the astronomically rare event of a collision, the worst that happens isn't that bad. If we were gambling the future of the world on this, then it might make sense to consider continuing to focus on improving our odds. But, as it is, we have adequately protected against this risk.
