This is going to be immensely useful. I remember depending on many `swift3` branches during the summer on my current iOS dependency manager of choice. Also applies for bug fix branches, experimental feature branches, etc...

Yes. Very significant.

All other dependent managers I've used had this feature and I'v ended up using it fairly often.

>    • How much effort did you put into your review? A glance, a quick reading, or an in-depth study?
