Hum, sounds too much noise for an internal control. Tronical used to have a
script that cherry pick the patch and added a comment to the bug iirc.
Mozilla used to have a 'needs-cherrypicking-to-release branches' keyword, or
something like that.

These sound not perfect either, but more sense to me.

ps2: if I am the only one, ignore me.
