Right, there's also the bzrmerge.el thingy that needs to be ported to Git.

Currently, you'll be better off not using "colocated branches" but two
separate Git trees.  To the extent that most .el files will change
between the two branches, a "git checkout" will be followed by a the
equivalent of a full bootstrap (and will probably always require "make
bootstrap" when switching from the release branch to the trunk).
