TopGit can certainly handle it, but it'll make a royal merging mess
of your history. The idea of TopGit is never to mess with history,
so the ancestry graph gets very complex with 5 patch branches, and
a lot more with 30-60 patches.

That said, TopGit will not lose track, and if you employ a smart
branch-naming-scheme, neither will you.

If you have any suggestions for improvements, we'd love to hear
them. Debian-related TopGit stuff probably best goes to
vcs-pkg-discuss@lists.alioth.debian.org. TopGit general stuff to
git@vger.kernel.org with a [TopGit] subject prefix.
