This would be awkward to implement, and I'm not sure it would be a good
idea.  This would mean that you can have a conflict within a single
repository that needs to be resolved (when you try to record a patch that
conflicts with a hidden patch), which adds all sorts of complexity for very
dubious gains.  With certain work patterns it would be nice, but in others
it would lead to very confusing behavior.
