The even/odd numbering issue was pretty well resolved 3-4 years ago
with the conclusion that two wildly diverging development lines
(stable/development) is a Bad Idea.  Hopefully nobody is still

I would be interested to hear Andrew talk about his own tree (-mm) and
possibly other important trees he pulls from.
