if it works in practice i wouldnt mind a branch but do the following work?
have main + a few branches checked out in a single compileable tree
do development
run fate
pull in new changes
push own commits

all without extra work relative to having all in main ?

OMG, i just realize it, mplayers whitespace formating encodes something its
not random, you can clearly see this from the entropy distribution. All along
thouse years the whitespace just tried to say one thing, "i am alive, please
dont kill me"
