You mean when g commit && g push creates / pushes multiple commits?

For example when you rename a function in a repo and fix the build in 3
other ones.

It would be really nice not to try to test the 3 ones where the build
will obviously fail (and the tinbuild approach provides this). OTOH of
course that's possible - provided that those hooks still push the state
to a githeads.git?

Sure - I don't have an idea either how to not count a merge as a single
step with split repos.
