If a code branch is not accepted by the original project, but the developer 
thinks it is worth enough, the usual outcome in free software projects is to 
create a fork [1]. Sometimes, the forked code and the original trunk coexist 
for some time until one or both die, or get finally merged again. It happened 
in GCC, with the 'egcs' fork, and also in the projects Compiz, Beryl and 
Compiz Fusion.

This is the jungle, brother.
