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.
