I can't confidently assert that there's a complete lack of direction
about what the branch is for, because it's always possible that there
was such direction and I simply didn't see it (although a permanent
file in the tree would be better than a mailing list post, for that).

But, just as a data point: I'm in the same boat with David.  For
whatever reason, I also do not understand what the branch is for.
