I'm not sure about that.  If you were verifying a tree, how would you
identify which commits were merged in by what dev, using an automated
algorithm?

The only thing the merge commit contains is a list of two parents, and
a tree.  It doesn't say which one is which, unless we can rely on
their order.  Now, all those intermediate commits were never actually
published via rsync, so their integrity isn't a direct issue.
However, I'm not sure how easy automated verification would be.
