I already have, but TopGit does not really solve the same problem,
namely serializing a set of possibly conflicting heads with the end
result being identical to the state of an integration branch. At least
it does not do this automatically without the need to create extra
TopGit is nice though, but it still needs some work. A 'tg clone'
command which would pull also the bases automatically would be nice to
have. Also, is there a trick to get the "ours" merge strategy used in
.top* -files to work with octopus merge?
