I agree with Alex. It's no use to come up with an approach if some people
are going to run against the grain anyhow and do things their way.

I think using a single trunk is a mistake. Like Alex said, yes there are
10000 Mustella tests, obviously it's not enough with over 30000 defects in
JIRA. I would vote for separate branches. I'd go as far as making
integration branches for each patch submitted to run tests against that
patch and make sure nothing is broken that shouldn't be.

Either way, everyone has to buy in to whatever the consensus is, or it's
going to be a clusterfuck.
