I'm fuzzy when it comes to practical matters, such as who (if anybody)
is the benificiary of those other branches.  Aren't those theoretical

on a fewer number of branches?   (But we have to have a versioning
policy that allows the fewer number of branches without slowing down
the implementation of new features unnecessarily.)
