Great to hear this, I am impressed how fast the things get fixed here! :)

Now, I am a bit worried about my repositories since I use FSFS, but I am
currently running Phil's text-time branch (r13350q), and we are very happy
with this functionality and rely on it.

Now, staying on this branch, I will obviously miss your fix which I, ehh,
would not like.

Is there a chance that meta-data-versioning gets merged into the trunk, or do
I need to merge it into my copy? The problem with merging is that it starts
generating conflicts that need to be fixed manually, an the more the trunk
changes, the more conflicts will emerge...

I guess meta-data-versioning is quite usefull to many, and seems pretty stable
at the moment.

How should one proceed in such case?
