Patches that change policies or refactoring should be on a separate
branch. Patches that fix bugs and don't introduce new ones can go on
the trunk, and hopefully that would include your 2.6-compatibility work.
(It should also be understood that "Group X doesn't like the current
behavior" doesn't qualify as a bug fix if changing it breaks behavior
in use for Group Y", and when in doubt, either assume that Group Y
exists, or ask me.)

For the breakup or any other significant refactoring or policy
change, please start a new branch. I will take responsibility for
porting to the trunk and 0.6 branch as appropriate.
