Well, it is the only truly-accepted, VCS-agnostic way to have
a patch series in a Debian package, so why not?

This is going to get ugly, since for every tag on the build branch,
you need to create two tags on each topgit branch, denoting the
begin and end of the feature branch (which is done with
refs/top-bases/$name and refs/heads/$name (the tip) right now).

You might be able to determine either of these from the DAG, but
I somehow doubt it. I'd love to be proven wrong.
