That if you keep that code in a branch and the branch is public 
interested users can just rebase it to master (since the changes in the 
mpcodec branch would/should have nothing that couldn't be 
fast-forward+the patches only present in that branch) so it should not 
have much impact on the development while if the users are this 
interested they could take it and use it easily.

Topic branches are spawn and once ready merge-squashed to master in many
