I think the loudest voice was mine :-)
Actually, I was not against *keeping* the information, but against
*pulling* in such strange ways. If "cross-pulling" is allowed, I am all
for keeping track of that.
In the meantime, I did not think about the issue at all :-) However, as is
often the case in an open discussion, I think I was wrong after all. There
may be cases you want that, and in the end, nobody forces me to use that
Anyway, Junio decided to enhance the fetch mechanism to support the
cross-pulling (and also multi-pulling).
