I (and probably a couple other people) were hoping you'd say 'Doh! We
should get rid of branchless packages'

I can't quite put my finger on why, but I get the same feeling with
branchless packages that I get with eating not quite well done
hamburger.  In fact..... I'm wondering if rbrowse even knows to do the
right thing when it comes to branchless packages:

for (x = 0; x < rel_n_records (categories); ++x)
  for (y = 0; y < rel_n_records (branches); ++y)
    for (z = 0; z < rel_n_records (versions); ++z)
Offhand, should this code work with branchless packages?
