    All this fuss to go from no chance of collision to no chance of collision…

    Will it be easier to change the hashing algorithm in the future?

    Indubitably.

    It never was.

    I'm a champion of singular "they", which has been around for about 500 years (about the same amount of time as gender-neutral use of "he"), but going back a thousand years... and especially back to when our modern language hadn't yet formed from efforts to replace Old English with Old Norman, requires some citations.

    At the very least, I'd want to be sure you're not trying to justify bringing back something that was common a thousand years ago, but died out four or five hundred years ago.

    Yeah. "a warning", "five warnings", "fewer warnings". "a sand?" "five sands?" "less sand". The concept of countable and uncountable nouns still exists, despite us having muddled the waters by making "a water" shorthand for "a glass of water" and making "a bread", "a wine", "a cheese" shorthand for "a type of..." (eg. pumpernickel, 1984 chateaux la feet, brie)
