That's a great solution until someone checks a change into the
production branch accidentally.  As someone already mentioned, it'll
happen eventually.  

I'm a firm believer in not using version control as a deployment tool.
It's more work to create a package, deploy that to test, test, deploy
*the same package* to production, but you at least know that what you
tested is what's in production.  Pulling straight from VC you never
really have that assurance.
