 How might that work?

Just my thoughts, not sure if it's workable:)
* Ian maintains his git repo background, other developers just see a
 hg repo including qemu
* Keep sync between git qemu and hg qemu:
 1. Any patches including qemu changes go into git repo
automatically. Can scripts do this?
 2. When rebase qemu, Ian generate a big patch against previous git
repo, then push it back to hg repo.

I have no idea of current qemu rebase process, not sure if any extra
work load needed. Ian can comment.
