One more thing: in here, the workflow you describe will lead to the
'history folding' problem we were having, no? You don't indicate
keeping the dual-branch approach we'd discussed before and that I put
in the version of the guide I uploaded over the weekend.
The more I think about it, the more I think that no matter what we do,
the web history view will never be 100% correct: lp made the decision
to have a flat history view, and for a system that's fundamentally
based on branching, there will alyways be cases where the linear view
will fail to properly show the branch evolution and remerging.
But I do want to clarify (simply because *I* am not 100% sure what the
right solution is) if the dual-branch approach advocated earlier is
correct, necessary, useful, etc.
