So is this an intermediate mode before we move to single hiearchy *only*
mode. AFAIK, you had mentioned that we will support legacy multiple
hiearchy mode but single hiearchy is the new default mode.

How does one figure out which one is unified hiearchy (out of multiple
hierarchies). Is there a flag somewhere? Or sane flag will be used to
mark unified hiearchy.

So task and child groups can co-exist in root *only*?

That would help a lot in understanding various modes and that in
turn will help with patch reviews too.
