In the SableVM project, all new feature development is done in
sandboxes.  This helps maintaining a robust trunk (as much as is
possible).  My experience is that this works well.  Maybe you could do
the same in Harmony.  Isn't there already some "sandboxes"?

It might or might not work well here, though.  In SableVM, bugs are not
usually reported against sandboxes.  In contrast, in Harmony, almost
everything is done through JIRA, including patch submission...
