My only major comment is that merging fixes from the main trunk into
the RC may require more care if new development has also occurred in
the file. I'd be inclined to say something like: "remember the version
of the trunk file before you make the fix, then do a merge
-j<prev-version> -jHEAD in the RC branch".
