Well, make_it_cool branches are used to rewrite stuff while the HEAD
keeps stable. As soon as you're done with it, it's done and the tag name
can be used for other stuff again. So I'll always keep with 
make_it_cool_branch when I have to create a branch. As you can simply
move make_it_cool_branch back to HEAD if you need to.

Greetings, Stephan
