I've never used `larch' (the wonky shell-script predecessor to tla), but I
seem to recall it actually had something like `larch commit --continuation',
and in fact, that was how you made tags (no `tag' command).

I'd really like something like this, but I'm still nervous about how the
result would interact with merging commands; for instance, if I was in the
habit of star-merging from branch A to branch B, and then commited such a
`continuation' changeset to A, what would happen the next time I star-merged
from A to B?
