Excellent. Thanks. I'll take a look in the next few days.

It's a good question and one I don't have an answer to.

For someone mirroring an upstream branch or branches, I guess they just
want (1) the new revisions in the fast-import stream, together with (2)
some sort of cross-check that the local head/heads match the base used
to build the incremental fast-import stream?

How are incremental imports handled across your current tools?
