I'd personally rather not have branches. I think we can
do it by simply using tags.
I think that once DragonFly goes "production", users will want
branches. They'll want something like the freebsd-security
(or maybe call it freebsd-safe) branch.
I'm not sure that will be needed once we vfs layering is complete
along with the packaging system. All of the security updates can
be pushed out via a tagging inside the packaging system. ...
Hmm. Yeah, that's a good point. That goal is such a major
change that I keep forgetting how much potential it has to
change the way "Business is Done".
