Before the WoC merge, two people had worked on it, having it in (which really 
was a group decision at the sprint) 'elevated its priority' and more people 
joined in (locally at the sprint and on IRC). We got it back to something 
that looks like a desktop pretty quickly. Although speculative, I doubt this 
would have been possible when operating from a branch.

So yeah, pain, but worth it.
