How do you KNOW that the nearest signed descendant actually merged it?
How do you know it wasn't added by a hacker?
Also, when walking the tree keep in mind that there isn't just one
path in it (with merge commits), and the links are from any particular
HEAD going back. I'm not convinced that this is impossible, but it
isn't as trivial as it might seem at first glance.
