No, no, don't consider my "put in the merge message" a winner at all.

I personally dislike it, and don't really think it's a wonderful thing
at all. I really does have real downsides:

 - internal signatures really *are* a disaster for maintenance. You
can never fix them if they need fixing (and "need fixing" may well be
"you want to re-sign things after a repository format change")

 - they are ugly as heck, and you really don't want to see them in
99.999% of all cases.

So putting those things iin the merge commit message may have some
upsides, but it has tons of downsides too.

I think your refs/audit/ idea should be given real thought, because
maybe that's the right idea.
