If that were true, there wouldn't have been any problem in the first 
place, because each branch would only have one head (a "trunk"). We 
could have used a simple incrementing version number in each branch and 
be done (isn't this what BitKeeper does?).

The discussion so far as suggests people do care about being able to 
fork inside a branch - a fork carries a different "intent" than a 
branch. Monotone already recognizes this by having separate commands 
for forks and for branches.

Have fun,
