[Buildbot-devel] override revision being checked out

I’m wondering how I override the revision that git checks out?
The model I have set up is as follows:
merge-dir: checkout destination branch, merge in requested revision (i.e. revision property)
workdir: checkout merged result

The problem I’m having is that the Git step of workdir still always checks out the original revision.
I tried overriding ‘revision’ right before the Git step for workdir to no avail.  I tried setting got_revision,
but it looked to be ignored.

How do I go about having the Git step check out the revision I want instead of the revision it thinks I want?
Is falling back to command-line git the only way?
