I disagree that the presence of partial support is a bug, but it's
certainly a bug that we don't either

   a) Ignore historical information from the original repository, or
   b) Have full merge tracking :-).

We could implement (a) before (b). I'm not sure this is common enough
right now to be worth that, though.
