I wouldn't expect it to help, no. :-)

Robert's perspective here, FWIW, is that he develops and tests (quite
extensively) in a configuration in which all libraries are on their master
branch and Serialization is on develop.

On this configuration, once everything is green, merge is as easy as
"merge --no-ff develop". You've already tested it, so there's no way
anything can fail.

Of course this has its own drawback - the tests do not work in
such a manner.
