Well, the do break the tests *now*, as soon as I commit up my fix to
the test suite, heh. But they only break one or two tests, which I've
simply commented out for now.

If the bad merge semantics were/are going to cause you a real-life
problem, then I happily reverse my earlier position :-). Let's keep
the current changes in the trunk -- and there's no need to do further
development on a branch unless it's going to break things more than
they're broken now (which is to say, more than just the feedback
brokenness). We can just continue on the trunk.

I don't know what's up with the nasty "svn cp" output Philip just
posted, but it's probably related.
