    ok, lets do it that way.

    it's unsafe if we ever rewind a commit that you rely on later, and
    git-gc zaps it from tip.git?

    i think it would be better to not rely on that yet. The overwhelming
    majority of activities in tip.git are append-only, but the integration
    branches (which are included in tip/master) get regenerated frequently.
    If you base on a topic branch itself (say tip/x86/nmi) - that should be
    pretty stable.
