If you read enough off the things, you'll see that Jordan wrote a python 
script that re-targets all the open MRs so that's not a manual process. 
It's not a GitLab-sanctioned solution but it's the next best thing. The one 
downside is that all the MRs will get their last updated timestamp reset 
but that seems like a pretty small price to pay.

Jordan, is there any way you can make the script sort by last updated 
before it re-targets the MRs so they at least stay in the same order? 
Updating them in MR # order wouldn't be bad either, I guess.
