Actually, now that I think about it, you wouldn't necessarily get a
perfect *re*construction (the umbrella would be triggered by a push so
could still have a different order if each push is picked up
immediately and one commit-date lags).

What you would get is a better (not perfect) guarantee of each
umbrella commit having a sane state, after script downtime. That's
seems less persuasive to me.
