Branches are *lables*.

If the decision is that the code in gnumach-1-branch is what we should
care most about using and releasing, and that this is the code which
should be the basis of ongoing development, then it is, de facto,
HEAD.  Which is what you said.  In that case, it should be
incorporated into HEAD and the existing HEAD be a branch, with a
suitable name.

Now I'm not agreeing that we should drop HEAD, simply that if we
should, then the solution is to put the right code under that name.

If this is not immediately crystal clear, then you shouldn't be making
these decisions.
