This is sound reasoning. I was way too pre-mature in making a ver1.0
branch. I had thought that backward incompatible changes would go into
the trunk and the ver1.0 branch would be more or less stable. But this
was not a wise move as I'm beginning to see. If somebody wants to
experiment with a change, they can make a branch...
