Indeed Michael's suggestion to merge finished CWS first is too much: we 
should create branches for them in svn, but merging must be decided on 
for each CWS individually. There may be other reasons why a CWS 
shouldn't be merged to master, e.g. because the work on it is still not 
finished and it will either break the master or introduce horrible bugs.

Thanks for the heads-up regarding CWS hsqld19.
