well, i disagree with you ... the changes that have been made to devel
reached a point, where they can't easily be merged with miller's version
any more ...
of course, someone could branch of a devel2_0_39 that's based on
stable_0_39 ... but i think this is not worth the effort.
having more than one major branches _is_ a bad idea (but it's the
current situation) ... having more two is insane.
so the one branching from stable_ should consider discussing with the
PD community / Pure Devil developers about the changes he proposes...

well a few changes will have to be made. some may even break the binary
compatibility with miller's branch ...
still, i think it would be a very bad approach to get a too big distance
between miller's pd and what's now devel ... 

cheers ... tim
