Hmm...I don't see why it's so much more work: just tag your working
directory as you suggest above, and pull the tag to your published

this kind of policy-type functionality with multiple repositories
instead of complex intra-repository mechanisms.

If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
