I don't mind much, but it looks sensible since it quite follows current
scheme and is clear.  So yes, I agree.

AFAIK it hasn't been merged, but I'm not sure the code it holds is still
relevant, although the idea looks interesting.  Maybe Enrico or Nick
would know more?

Seems sensible too, since not everybody will (need to) have write access
to the official repo, the branches should be in their author's clones.
However if one branch is ready yet, it may be not worth the effort of
removing and re-getting it?  (honestly I don't really know the status of
these branches, my bad)
