    Well, what I meant was have some kind of pointer in the collapsed stuff
    that conflicts with the detailed stuff, and requires the user to pick
    which on they want. Ideally, this could default to user picks, but a
    repository policy of 'only take collapsed versions' could be used for
    upstream trees, say like linuxppc_2_4. (linuxppc_2_4_devel could take
    detailed versions).
