ohhhh. so the difference between the 4.5 and the 4.6 branches in kde-qt isn't 
now this makes a bit more sense - I couldn't understand why you didn't just 
create a branch and make everyone happy. :)

would it be an option to have a "recommended" branch that gets hard-reset 
somehow to the latest branch, and tell people using that branch to pull -f? or 
would it cause trouble for other people using the repository?

it sounds like what we really want is some kind of movable tag... but git tags 
can't move...

btw, has anyone thrown that HEAD workaround up on techbase yet? :)
