It depends on what you do call a "main development branch".

If/when work is done on devel_0_38 quicker than Miller can work on the 
"HEAD" branch, then who's more main than the other?

Ok, what are your concerns vis-à-vis the development branch ?

I ask this because I'm resuming work on ImpureData right now, and 
there's not going to be an "impd_0_38" branch. What does it mean to you 
and everybody else on the devel branch ?
