When you check it in to the trunk, it will be merged into the branch
the next time we do a merge.  We've adopted a policy of "merge early,
merge often", by the way -- my procrastination was ill-guided. :-)

If 2.2a1 receives good marks, we'll do a marge back to the trunk and
then we'll be out of the merge business.
