We had already discussed (was it 1, 2 years ago) that personal

If something is a branch, it should actually be a branch (ie copy from 
the main code), so it can merge. If not it can still reside in branches, 
as in subversion it's just a dir.

Same here.

If someone wants to experiment on a branch, just say so and do it, and 
label the branch with a significant name. When/if time to merge back 
will occur, we will vote. Simple IMHO.
