Well, I looked into that.  But really, all of that information needs
to be correlated per file (for instance, we file bugs against a
branch); I can't really do what I need to (database lookups) in 
successive steps with partial info at each step.  I could accomplish the 
same thing by writing out temp files on the server from commitinfo and 
then having verifymsg supply the rest of the information and correlate with 
the temp files.  But, well, eww.

I thought commitinfo doesn't supply the branch normally?  I found a patch 
at that allows it to do so, and considered various
options related to that patch before settling on this plan.
