However, it's also true that the thing BK is _worst_ at is cherry-picking
things, and having a collection of stuff where somebody may end up vetoing
one patch and saying "remove that one".

So it's entirely possible that the proper tool to use for the first level
is not BK at all, but the evolved patch-scripts that Andrew uses, in other
words:

http://savannah.nongnu.org/projects/quilt

may well be a much better thing to use.

I love BK, but what BK does well is merging and maintaining trees full of
good stuff. What BK sucks at is experimental stuff where you don't know
whether something should be eventually used or not.
