we have already agreed that we need to bundle it anyway, so we can do even 
a blead version of it.

but all the cruft lives in, if you yank it how will it work? In 
any case you don't want to break existing modules using it, unless we call 
it Apache-Test-2.0 and then we can change the API.

Not sure why do we need that. I've meant to make our Apache::Test a 
subclass of Test::More.

In any case, once I have the ithreads-unstable branch of mp2, how do I 
proceed? Do I need to make a separate branch of A-T and then somehow tell 
the ithreads-unstable to use that as externals? Did you by chance document 
the steps you went through when doing the rename branch?
