I know. I, too, have a bunch of stable code on HEAD that is going to
be a pain to move over. To help ease this transition, I'll come up
with the appropriate "svn merge" commands to make it easy to pull
changes from HEAD into the development branch. Then, it should be
only a small matter to test them locally and commit them to the
development branch. If someone does cause problems with such a
commit, Subversion makes it very, very ease to revert those
changes... and we will.
