   1.0 is the release branch and Manuel only want serious patches there.

   TRUNK is for exercised changes and bugs. I don't have the resources 
to try a build of every book and every variation. I am limited to x86 
and x86-64 so other architectures don't get exercised. The books may be 
correct but the jhalfs scripts may be be wrong. I rely on the 'kindness 
of strangers'

   experimental is where the truly radical changes take place the demons 
exorcised (LUSER/LGROUP is/was radical as it the menuconfig system.) 
They eventually make it to TRUNK. I hate breaking TRUNK
