That's very true. Indeed, perhaps one could argue that GitHub needs 
service-hooks which allow customization of merging and diff display. 
That general feature there would solve the VCS problem in a natural way 
for a number of types of data which are needed in modern software 

I suspect it will come in time as, to be fair, the integration abilities 
have increased a fair bit since we started using it in 2013; and we've 
used them quite extensively in our Vulcan (CI / Build System) 
integration so that information about PRs appear directly on the 
relevant PRs (and shout at you when you've made a mistake!).

I was chatting to Peter about that this morning - he is less optimistic 
about there being 'natural general solution' than I. He is probably, 
lamentably, right.
