I feel like the unicode character "…" makes it much more clear that the
path has been modified, but it's a moot point considering that if
someone might get confused by this, they probably won't be able to make
use of the hash.

However, now that I come back to this after some time, I realize that
there is another solution:

    (string-append store (string-take hash 8) "<span></span>"
                         (string-drop hash 8))

This would neuter the reference without having any user-visible impact on
about:buildconfig. What do you think?

Kind regards,
