Yeah, well, it seems some people -- cmpilato for one -- do have some non-shallow thoughts about this subject. C-Mike said on IRC:
julianf: I think you're looking at things backward. Or maybe I am. I don't want users' haphazard behaviors to inform the server about what appears to be a branch-root. I want a person -- the same person who would fire off the angry email to the idiot that merged and committed a subtree -- to say up front: "Here's our branch-root, server (and client). Now protect it!"
May the discussion yet bear fruit.
