Because subversion is odd? It might be something to do with the way I
merged it, but I'm not sure. Maybe a subversion branch isn't the best
option. If we ever modularize, I assume you'll initially want patches
against the monolithic release, rather than modules. So it'll either
have to be a separate repo, or we'll have to work out some way to
generate useful patches. Also, the subversion branch won't really work
for documentation fixes. We've got them in a very awkward form at:
Anyway, I've put clean patches on the website, there's a page at:
