My comment actually has nothing to do with the way struct object_id is
set up.  That actually can be trivially extended with a byte or two of
type.

Instead, I was referring to areas like the notes code.  It has extensive
use of the last byte as a type of lookup table key.  It's very dependent
on having exactly one hash, since it will always want to use the last
byte.

There are other, more subtle areas of the code that just don't handle
multiple hashes well.  Ideally we would remedy this, but I think
everyone is very eager to move away from SHA-1, and since nobody has
stepped up to volunteer to do that work, we should probably adopt a
solution that doesn't involve doing that.
