Steve Cameron has a patch that does that (although he spells it ".trunk"
rather than "TRUNK"):
Now that we have different branches for development and release,
do you see any chance that this will be committed to the dev
branch anytime soon?

Kind regards

I haven't worked on that patch in a long time, unfortunately.
(no internet access at home anymore, which I admit
is somewhat ridiculous.)

There is a problem with the ".origin" feature and vendor branches (it doesn't work on vendor branches.)
I don't recall the exact details, or know how hard
it would be to fix it to work on vendor branches.

Also unfortunate, I combined the two features,
".trunk" and ".origin" into one patch, because
it was too hard to keep them separate.

I'd certainly consider committing this to the dev branch if the patch was ported forward and the problems were fixed. I don't have time to do the work myself however. My wife isn't about to let me spend much more time on unpaid work until we know we can make our mortgage payments for the foreseeable future. Of course you could contract the work through my company. :)

"My father often told me,
We have servants and machines
in order that our will may be carried out
beyond the reach of our own arms.
Machines are more powerful than servants
and more obedient and less rebellious,
but machines have no judgement
and will not remonstrate with us
when our will is foolish,
and will not disobey us
when our will is evil.
In times and places where people despise the gods,
those most in need of servants have machines,
or choose servants who will behave like machines.
I believe this will continue
until the gods stop laughing."
