Yes, but it's combined on the server end, using a really big tree of
symbolic links.  Some people like it because they don't like running a
combiner command (http://gcc.gnu.org/simtest-howto.html) and this is an
almost transparent process.  Other people dislike it because it:  1) creates
additional load on an overloaded server, 2) is read-only; you can't commit
to it, and 3) it's additional hassle to update only one side of the tree,
not both.

by definition, not smart enough to debug it.
