Re: Unexpected behavior with :/<text> references

After further investigation, it appears that ":/foo" indeed resolves to
the commit with message "foobar" (in the above example) if the commits
are not all created at the same time: e.g., by adding `sleep 1` between
the commit commands, or exporting `GIT_AUTHOR_DATE`.

This leaves only the question of why :/<text> references don't resolve
to commits reachable only from HEAD, and whether this is the best
