I guess your assuming I send my pull request after Russell's, which
isn't necessarily true, and I'd rather not have that dependency if I
don't have to. 

Even with a one time event what your suggesting seems like it would be
some what freaky. I wouldn't want to wait around for Russell to get his
tree merged before I can get a reasonable log of my own activities
(without jumping through hoops).

Of course I could do what your suggesting, I just don't think it's the
easiest way to fix this.
