I sometimes pull things in from unrelated repositories to rebase or
cherry-pick items from a different line of development. I've done this
to bring isolated features into a project in their own feature
branches with their full development histories, and also to extract
lines of development out to their own project, with their histories
intact. These are usually not connected commits, but things I have to
track down across time with `git log -S` and friends.

When I `git remote add otherrepo <url>`, then view things with my
aliased `git log --oneline --all --graph --decorate` alias, I'm
usually immediately straining to figure out what's what, as the two
trees stack onto each other with no separation. It would be nice if
root commits used something other than *, and/or if they could be
colored differently by default, or via some option to make them stand
out as parent-less commits.

Is this feasible, or already possible?
