I'd tend to agree. I also think the recent conversion work is a fine solution, and that my preference for that might influence my agreement here.
I don't think we should maintain a requirement that we have monotonic numbers going forward. That's just not the git way. I've been known to do git log, and then manually pick start and end, and then bisect based upon not date, but out of a large hash list. The concerns that some dates have a ton and other dates have few, doesn't come in to play, as each hash is 1 unit of work, so a list of 10235 hashs, can be trivially split into 2, 3, 4 or 1042, if you have the machines for it.
