We usually do it, development on the trunk and each release gets its own 
maintenance branch. Anyway, sometimes a developer is allowed to start an 
"experimental" branch to test some new ideas - something it looks very 
difficult to do on the trunk.

And this time I had to experiment with some improvements that required 
radical changes, while other developers should have been able to work on the 
trunk as usual - it wasn't know beforehand if the experiment would have been 
successful or not :-)

Ok, it worked. The mergepoint is not an issue, the experimental branch is 
"dead" now, and will be used no longer.

Thank you.
