Thinking more about it, why can't we just
use the source from trunk (0.8-dev) for both.

We can just clearly label the group of items
under dev to be "Dispatcher-in-developement"
Or even have a separate menu for that.

There are other useful pipelines that are common
to both, like the ones that Ferdinand showed via
Javascript, and also localhost:8888/abs-linkmap
and linkmap for each page.
