I have an alternative idea: Wouldn’t it make sense to split the work instead, if somebody
was willing to do the recurring merges with master?

it would be just the normal src folder then?

That would give more room for experiments, and not leak experimental code into releases, and
I’m thinking merging wouldn’t require intimate knowledge of the old and new MOPs.
