I'm pretty sure people have already done "git merge v3.1" kind of
things using local tags (where no peeling of FETCH_HEAD has been
done). See

    git log --merges --grep 'Merge.*v[23]\.[0-9]'

for a ton of examples of this (and there's something odd going on: we
have "Merge commit .." and "Merge tag ..", and I suspect the latter is
people editing it to be correct by hand, but I dunno).

So this has always worked, methinks.

However - exactly beause git apparently makes it do that "Merge commit
" message, I suspect we've peeled things too early and too much. We've
peeled it so early that once again something thinks it's a commit, not
a tag.

So if anything, I suspect "git merge" not only peels, but peels too
much (or at the wrong point). We should probably peel as late as

But it's a small detail.
