Yes, exactly. The timetable is "yesterday of last month", or something
like that.

Seriously, I'm trying to do stuff to help make it mergeable: both in
terms of coding, but more particularly in terms of making it reviewable
and digestible. This log message is a part of that.

The most helpful thing I/we can produce right now is, I think, a summary
of what behaviours the branch improves vs. where it fails, so that we
can see at a glance if there are any regressions and how much fixing is
required to make it a definite win for putting on trunk.

I think that's the only thing needed before merging to trunk. (I also
need to check how much it meets its goals, but that is not holding it
off the trunk.)

If you (anyone) can help evaluate it - perhaps by running the tests and
looking at the verbose output - I'd very much appreciate it.

Tests (on the branch) that are directly testing tree conflicts:
  cmdline/info_tests.py 1
  cmdline/update_tests.py 46 47 48 49 50
  cmdline/switch_tests.py 31 32 33 34 35
  cmdline/merge_tests.py 107 108 109 110 111 112 113 114 115 116
  cmdline/tree_conflict_tests.py # 1 through 16

Tests (on the branch) that are failing for related reasons:
  cmdline/checkout_tests.py 13
  cmdline/update_tests.py 14 15 31 33 34
  cmdline/switch_tests.py 21 24
  cmdline/merge_tests.py 19 20 39 68 106
