Since I also have the issue of dealing with multiple repositories (in
one case, several SVN repos; in another, SVN + Git), I also have an
interest in seeing support for this.

One question I've thought about is how possible it would be to take a
page out of CVS's book (something I don't recommend doing often :-)) and
use a *time* for the sourcestamp when multiple repositories are involved.

Barring issues like CVS's "commits aren't atomic", is there wide support
for this across version control systems? How hard would it be to hack
this in, even if it's a temporary solution (maybe even an unsupported
patch) until a better one is implemented?
