Yes, I thought about that. That is another reason why I decided
not to remove /trunk right now. As you said previously, /trunk
is patch-49 (almost, just a few changes).

I agree that build-improvements is rapidly gaining distance
on /trunk and Axiom Gold. In my opinion (but I don't know how
Gaby feels about this), build-improvements is now nearly stable
enough to be merged back. I think it should be merged back to
the new /silver root instead of /trunk. /trunk (as it exists
today) should disappear.
