Moving the "equiv to bzr r123456" to the commit message of that
corresponding Git commit sounds like an good compromise.  Of course, we
don't need it for every commit, but for all those commits that have
a corresponding "action stamp".

But where would this map be stored?
Keeping it directly in the commit log sounds like a better approach.
