We are still in the process of figuring out reasonably automatic
procedures to admit merge commits (which have the advantage that for the
purpose of bisection, the mainline jumps across the series in one
piece).  They require extra care when rebasing, and extra care is not
easy to get at the average git literacy being around.  So it is not
clear whether it makes sense to try making them a regular part of our
toolset.  Of course, if most of the work can be automated without all
too much pain, this might be worth trying out.

The other option is _merging_ instead of fastforwarding dev/staging
whenever we are not sure about every single of its components.  That
makes for a less straightforward history and makes it quite harder, if
problems are detected afterwards, to revert the responsible commits
without affecting the rest.
