Speaking as a person who has done a lot of repository migrations, this
makes me shudder.  It's fragile, kludgy, and does not maintain proper
separation of concerns.

The feature I *didn't* ask for at the next format break is a user-modifiable
key-value store per commit that is *not* in the commit comment.  Bzr
has this.  It's useful.
