Perhaps concerned users might be somewhat reassured by an experiment
such as the following.  Create a specially crippled version of
monotone, which uses (say) only 12-bit hashes.  Run whatever test
suite you can, a bunch of times.  See what blows up.  Add any new
practical consistency checks that those booms suggest would help.
