That is what I meant.  You go through local reflog entries until you
find one that is older than the timestamp of the reflog entry of the
remote-tracking branch, check with oideq() to see if the tip was ever
directly checked out.  Then, using these same local reflog entries,
you can make in_merge_bases_many() tranversal to see if any of them
reach the tip.  I suspect that the number of local reflog entries you
need to examine would not be too many, so if you can put them all in
a single array of "struct commit *" pointers in the first "oideq()"
phase, you may be able to do just a single in_merge_bases_many() batch
to check for the reachability.

It would help the workflow I had in mind, but it would raise the
risk of false positives according to Dscho and I tend to agree, so
I do not know if it is overall a good idea.

Isn't that the oideq() test?

I think it amounts to the same as "does any reflog entry of HEAD
reach it?" and shares the same issues with false positives as the
first one.

That is overlong.  Let me try:

		/* need to check if local reflog reaches the remote tip */
		check_reachable:1,

		/* local reflog does not reach the remote tip */
		unreachable:1;

Thans.
