In the scheme you propose, the commit object is actually rewritten. So
whoever made and signed it first will then need to rebase on top of the
rewritten multi-signed version.

Is there a reason not to use detached signatures, and let each person
add them after the fact? You can store them in git-notes and then push
them along with the other commits (you can even check in a pre-receive
hook that the commits meet your N of M criteria, as long as everybody
has pushed up their signature notes).

I think this is just "git hash-object -w -t commit <file>", isn't it?
