I'm not sure how it helps solve what I was complaining about though --
the thing about such `kernel-style' branches would be that there are
_many_ of them, to the degree that the number of names would be a
problem for the maintainer himself, not just others looking at his
archive.  I think you might want two namespaces for branch names:
`pending', and `applied', with branches moving between them at different
times (this is what my suggestion of a `hidden' flag was intended to
simulate, in simple, albeit rather ad-hoc, manner).
