In the long-term view, a pretty trivial catch-up script ought to be
able to synthesize a sane history after any amount of down-time.
People could even run it locally for their bisecting needs if it was
that important to them.

In the short term, I don't think it's a critical enough service to
worry about, frankly. What we already have is hopelessly fragile:
right now when LLVM's server plays up it takes out absolutely
everything, in the proposed world it would take out this bisecting
convenience feature. Seems like a strict improvement to me.

I'm not the best scripter and I'd be happy to cede to someone else,
but I'd be willing if it meant we could make progress.
