Wouldn't the return value be more natural as a hash? I guess you'd
have to sprintf the keys (commit revs) to strings. And maybe you do
rely on the sort order; I dunno.

Also, is commit_rangelist a list of revnums or of ranges? Is
merge_ranges_lists a list of lists of revnums, or a list of
rangelists?
