Agreed. That's why I didn't propose this. I proposed spawning off a
daemon that would post-process _one_ commit and exit. It could do all
sorts of analysis of the content and finding the best (for some
definition of "best") source for the delta, etc.

That'd work too, but needs administrator intervention. Spawning a daemon
process doesn't.
