How would that help us in what way?

When I ask "git log -g next/foo" for the "next/foo" branch that
currently exists, I want to see the update history of its tip since
I created it for the last time, and then an entry that says I
created it at such and such time.  If I used to have the branch
before but deleted, then the output should be followed by another
entry that says I deleted it at such and such time, followed by the
history of the tip updates.
