That's a reasonable thing to want to do.

Yeah, sadly that does not work, as we use the same slot for the flag and
store only one of the two (and we also allow only one "--merged" head,
even though you could in theory want to know "merged to X, or merged to
Y"). I do not think there is a reason we could handle both. I think we
could even do it with a single traversal, but even with two traversals,
doing both in-process will be faster (because we only have to pull the
commits from disk once).

So I think it is something that ought to work, but it will need some
code written. Patches welcome. ;)
