Oh nevermind, I give up.

I'm too busy to explain this idea again or jump through any more
hoops.. if it hasn't registered with any developers by now then it's
not of sufficient interest. I'm kindof surprised, but hey whatever..
inter-repo merging seems like a feature lots of people could use.

That would be fine with me! I just want to be able to merge in patches
from one repo to another (not an unreasonable feature request IMHO),
even if that means history is not handled "optimally" for copies.
