I don't see why.  In either case, one must look
at the history.  With branches, the history is less
complicated to some extent (because one sometimes needs to look
only at one branch's history) but more complicated in
other respects (because one must sometimes look at
another branch's history, if a merge introduces
a problem); overall, using branches doesn't seem like
it'd help much here.

Certainly Emacs could be organized better, by isolating
platform-specific code and by removing duplication among
the ports we have, but branches quite possibly would make
that (big) job even harder than it is now.
