I don't have any comments about this one.

Storage should be guided by the UI, not the other way around.

Looks good.

 * The "Error handling" section should mention the case where
insert-nested refers to a "merge" line.
 * I don't think namespacing is too much
 * There's no way to change the base branch
 * It looks like it has the potential to be very confusing
   * Perhaps one way to help with this is to have a tool that displays
the recipe that results from the derivation
 * Why not "remove"?

What's the next step?
