Yes, I did say *any* branch.

We run tests on the trunk. When that's working we tell the script to
test the release branch. There's no need to merge the tools until both
of those pass/work. Right now you can't test if the tools will work on
testing the release branch without breaking the release branch (and
possibly the trunk). I'm changing that so that we can test the
regression tools independent of the branch they are testing. Hence I can
test if they work on the trunk, and then test they work on the release.

That's a separate question...

* Do we want to include the tools in the release?
