A simple fast-forward on one branch doesn't actually work.

There a lot of patches that I find I want to cherry pick, but they are waiting
on some other fix. Meanwhile other patches are committed to trunk.

I don't think that a "don't do that" is going to work, because Perl is
sufficiently big and sufficiently diverse that we're not going to find out
that some blead patches are actually troublesome until some days (or even
weeks) after they are committed, because of the diverse nature of platforms
and configurations upon which Perl builds and is built.

Patches really need a third state of "maybe", with annotations on why it's
