Actually, I think it is reasonable to have a "may be broken" branch.
In fact this is one of the main reasons for having a branch -- if you
can keep stuff building and working, in many cases you won't need a
branch at all.

As for private, I think we should be careful.  Nothing in Classpath
can truly be private, the point is we're building something in common.
But it can be reasonable to have a rule like, 'please ask me before
committing to this branch'.
