This seems to be in principle the same as the tie branches. It might
make sense to have a way to _optionally_ make a tie branch.

How should that work? Maybe there needs to be even an explicit support
for this - should TopGit just check the dependency tree when
sequencing the topic branches and have a step that says:

        "I'm going to sequence branch A. If there is branch T that has
        only already sequenced branches + branch A as dependencies,
        use T's content instead of A."

Would that be satisfactory?

Finding out this information would be very expensive, of course. But for
other reasons, we might want to keep a cache of branch dependencies.

Of course, in the case of


the sequenced branches would still be like


unless you create the T1..T4 branches manually.
