    It should be noted that implementing this would result in the package
    names becoming wildly inconsistent if you bisect over the point where
    this feature is introduced. In order to be useful, it would need to
    determine if its own implementation commit is shadowed by the 'bisect
    good' marker, make a note of this in a non-overwritten location (.git,
    eg), then disable itself and use the old behavior if it would bisect
    over its own introduction.
