Yes, the way to store this information changed. But by now, it [the
$orig_head which caused the havoc] is completely informational anyway
and git pull is completely rewritten not to need it for the merging
itself; just for the fancy stuff like showing diff-tree.

If I go for the pull/update change (or even if I don't), I might drop
this information anyway; I basically needed it only before merge-base
was around anyway, so that I would know what tree to use as the merge

That's the case with the latest git-pasky night version.
