Sure. The main thing I wanted to alert you about is that right now, AFAIK,
the HEAD code is pretty similar to the maintenance branch code and
integration *should be* relatively easy. If improvements are made to the
HEAD code, then issues of merging, etc. crop up that make integration
difficult. That is OK too -- I just want to make sure that if it is done
that way, it is done that way on purpose.

Please feel free to contact me offline if you have implementation questions.
