That won't work well. That'd mean that right now we'd have a 7.x branch 
which receives constant merges or cherry-picks from master until 7 LTS 
is released.

There's so many things wrong with this, I don't even know where to 
start. ;-)

First the hash must be shortened, then people will hate you for 
"versions" like this
and marketing and merchandising won't work well with something like this 

If you manage to get a commit merged which results in a hash like "deadbeef"
though, we can talk again. :-)
