I don't think so.  It looks to me like the branch was created over 13
months ago and has not yet merged back into trunk.  So, from what I
can tell, we have 3 different dispatcher related code-sets:

/branches/dispatcher_rewrite
/trunk/whiteboard/dispatcher
/trunk/whiteboard/plugins/*dispatcher

>From what I can tell, the latest code is still in the branch.  If this
is correct, beyond whether or not it goes into the 0.9 release, I
think it'd be "Really Good" if we merged it soon...  the most
immediate concern is deciding whether it makes it into the release or
not though...
