that goes towards the same direction as the questions at the bottom of
the mail I wrote a minute ago.
I thought branching would be the right thing, because I could keep the
whole project in one place (i.e. the repository). After all, even if the
two version differ they are the same for 99.5% of the code.

Ifdefs would probably work, but I can't use them. The project is
distributed as source code (it's a script language). Everbody could
remove these ifdefs and would have the benefit of the customized code.
But it would work for compiled programms. ok.
