Ah hah! That is the best thing I've read all month. I can simply
do that in a post-commit hook after detecting that a branch has
just been re-integrated. Sweeeet.
(You would not believe the massive Python framework I've had to
write for a client the past few weeks in order to be able to have
an extensible, programmatic context to write hooks in that allow
you to easily identify if a commit is a re-integration of a branch.)
(Although it does other things too.)
