Nice feature.

Can a later commit be eventually be made to reference some set
of notes added so far, so they become part of the whole history
signed by the HEAD SHA1? hence pulled/pushed automatically as
well. Otherwise do you not end up with a forever growing separate
tree of notes that loses some of the properties of being behind
the head SHA1 (and perhaps less scalable in manageability)?
Also that way notes are separate only temporarily.

As for automating the inclusion of notes in the flow, can that
be conditional on some pattern in the note, so that e.g. the
Acked-by's get included and folded in automatically, whereas
others do not, according to settings?
