Yes, I agree that if we have a development branch then we should rather have a 
single one used by several people instead of several branches. Maintaining 
several branches with bigger differences and only one developer maintaining it 
is usually pretty awful work to remerge (and judging from my personal 
experience no matter whether you're using SVN nor GIT ...).

The question is when we want to start this branch. And I'd personally like to 
see all changes merged back no later than July 31 (Midterm evaluation and KDE 
4.3 release).
