Let's not forget that the reason we're struggling right now with
Martin's changes is that he had them in a branch for a long time with
little outside testing. Which makes me wonder if, really, developing
such sweeping changes in a branch is such a good idea, once past the
point where everything seems to be more or less in place. Is not as if
destabilizing the trunk is such a big deal anyway, and it would get
more testing.
