-Re: Is anyone using serialized iterators to provide provenance data?

Oh, I see what you mean. Table B was created from table A with a
function F (where F is some collection of iterators like you said).
It could be a neat application of the clone command. Storing that
information on table B is some exercise in where to put that immutable
information (that's me ignoring that problem :P).
You say git: do you actually intend to have a cheap replay ability? Or
merely be able to view the history and be able to work through the
Seems reasonable for a 1.6 wish to me.
