Sync should converge given a well-enough connected network and enough
nodes within it running sync, although I lack a full proof of this and
haven't tried to quantify the details. (Joachim Breitner may have one).
There was a bug that caused a "commit ladder" in gitk,
but a kind user pointed out the problem and it's been fixed for a while;
git-annex merge does fast-forward merges whenever possible.
