It's already there and in use. Unless you deliberately join-tree,
categorys with the same name are independent. Want to avoid merging code
from someone? Well, thats an orthogonal feature, and interesting in it's
own right. 'Re-homing' the tree history though, I simply don't grok. You
don't need to rehome, because the root has never changed.

Personally, I think what you are proposing is more confusing than not.
