The SegmentMK (with the MongoDB backend) can do this using the
"hierarchical journal" feature. The SegmentMK maintains one or more
"journals" that each track the evolution of a particular branch of the
repository. These branches would normally be automatically merged back
to the "root" journal, but a particular deployment could easily
disable automatic merging for a particular branch and use it for a
purpose like the one you described.
