I'm confused.  I'm a happy user of dgit and don't have to think about any
of those things as part of using dgit.  I choose to use branches, but I
certainly wouldn't have to, and merging, multiple remotes, and so forth
don't seem related to using dgit at all.

Maybe you're using dgit in a way that's suboptimal for your workflow?
