I think so. However, it's probably better not to change the existing
master-unionmount branch, but rather drop it alltogether and create a
new one with a different name once you actually start adding the
approved patches. Otherwise, people who already checked out the original
branch will get in trouble...

(Also, I still don't get the point of the "master-" prefix. This is not
CVS, where we needed to remember where the branch comes from, as it was
hard to figure it out from history; and it was crucial to know, because
merging had to be handled in a strictly controlled manner to work at
