Btw, I wonder how hard it would be to go past tag boundary to find a common ancestor. Has anyone thought/tried to do something about it ?

Lots. AFAICT, a project treee doesn't have a reliable way of knowing who its direct ancestor is*, so you have to scan the archive until you hit a tag point.

My understanding is that Tom doesn't like the idea of star-merge using parent archives. Please correct me if that's wrong.

It's definitely possible in theory.


*The unreliable way is scanning patch logs.  But patch logs may be deleted.
