If you follow the "strict-subset" policy (which I would strongly recommend, from
my experience) you'll end up with both branches in the trunk repo anyway.

Thus spake the Lord: Thou shalt indent with four spaces. No more, no less.
Four shall be the number of spaces thou shalt indent, and the number of thy
indenting shall be four. Eight shalt thou not indent, nor either indent thou
two, excepting that thou then proceed to four. Tabs are right out.
