Ah, I see.  Basically, your build branch is not TopGit-specific, but is
an integral part of your workflow.  In that case, it certainly makes
sense to export your patches there.  But am I right in assuming that you
would still maintain a build branch even if you were not using TopGit?

To answer my own question, I would say that the issue of a build branch
is somewhat TopGit-agnostic: if you already have one, use it; otherwise,
there's not much of a point in creating one just to hold the patches.
