I agree: we don't need branching. The GNATS PR database may be used as a
kind of "untested" branch. It's already possible to search for a port
from <http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/query-pr-summary.cgi?query>, to grab
the shar files or the patches, to test them, and then to report the
results of these tests. A reviewed PR might be committed faster.
