Assuming I understand correctly, that is true — but since the topic branch will
have been rebased for the first merge, it is quite unlikely that the re-merging
will really be any non-trival amount of work, isn't it?  commit's -C switch
means you won't need to retype any message, etc.

I don't mean to make a big deal of a small detail, but sticking to "effectively
linear history even with merges" is, I think, easy.
