This spurred me to scan the archives. I remembered that we
had discussion about this in 2001-12 where it seemed that
branch management was going to become easier.

Hm, I hope that not the whole HEAD is experimental. It *should* be very
similar to the 2.0 branch, except for some experimental components.

We created the 2.0 branch some month ago exactly for this experimental
stuff which is now much better located in the scratchpad directory.
So we really should move all experimental code of 2.1 into scratchpad,
sync 2.1 with 2.0 and then only use the HEAD. If we than make a 2.0.1
very fast we can forget about the 2.0 branch.
