I think that an awful lot of effort went into coming up with the
current behavior, and that while the suggested change (if we find that
our commit created N we bump things that are at N-1) is an incremental
improvement it's also one that's only going to help in the simplest of
cases. It's certainly possible that with what we've learned since the
initial discussions we can come up with something better, but
personally I think it's unlikely and the current proposal is added
complexity with little gain. Of course, it's quite possible that this
added complexity isn't all that much extra code at all, so if you
produce a patch and it turns out to be very simple, then fine, by all
means lets do it, I just don't think that's likely to be the case.
