    Who is branch, who is mainline? The branch owner _will_ be pissed off if
    his head version changes each time he syncronizes. What if mainline dies,
    and the official line moves to one of the branches? What happens when there
    aren't just two, but a dozen developers swizzling individual csets from
    each other (not necesarily just resyncing with each other)? If said
    developers also apply random patches from a common mailing list?

    This is _much_ harder than it looks on the surface.
