 * I start a branch as Then I suddenly realize
   that foobar is actually going to be a sub-part of, so I should have called it

 * I start a branch as priv.foobar because I have no idea
   where it will be in the public hierarchy later -- or
   whether it will ever make it into the public hierarchy.
   At some point it does and I know where; then I'd like to
   rename it.

 * I started dozens of to.cryp.{foo,bar} projects, then
   later I find out that it makes things much easier to put
   them all into a common hierarchy because these are all
   Haskell/C++/Whatever libraries, so I'd like to call them
   to.cryp.hs.{foo,bar} or to.cryp.cxx.{foo,bar} instead.

None of these branches ever made it to a public netsync
server, that's all just happening in my local database.

Did I mention that would love to have deletion of branches
in the local database too? ;-)
