I know, you know, that doing this is something I also want. But.. It's
actually hard to accomplish at the moment, although not impossible.
Switching branches for every library it's against how the build and test
systems work. It would mean calling N different build invocations (N ==
libraries). And the test system would need to adjust to parsing all the
individual invocations.
