Yes, the functionality you are describing seems to be as much about
version control as about build management. Plus the exact actions
and boundaries are still very fuzzy, at least to me. So it is probably
best to at least start the prototyping stage as an external tool to
get some clarity. At the same time, I am prepared to add any necessary
lower-level functionality to bdep. Things like discovering all the
initialized projects in a build configuration, etc.
