Only if you've been brain-damaged by CVS, IMO.

You've elided my suggestion.  I wonder what you thought about it.

As for your suggestion, it does not meet my criteria for a good commit
process for one simple reason:  you never get a look at the revision
that will end up in the archive before it gets there.  To me, that is
unacceptable.  Archive revisions are too important to guess at what they
might look like.  I want to see it before I "buy" it.
