Go with Peter's suggestion about committing on one of the branches (v7.3
or v7.4, doesn't matter, unless Peter knows something I don't insofar as
merging from branch->trunk vs trunk->branch?) ... then when we are ready
to start letting it all diverge, we can just re-sync the opposite branch
and keep on with development ...
