You are welcome.  But Stephen's version of history is far from what
really happened.  In particular, the CVS-like workflow was written by
Óscar Fuentes, not myself.  And the other workflow, the one written by
Karl and Stephen, suggested a bound branch from the get-go, AFAIR
(although I cannot prove that now, since the Wiki didn't keep the old
versions, and even the Wayback machine only has those instructions
since about a year after they were first published).
