Don't take me for a boring coordinator advocate or a brain-damaged testing 
engineer. I'm not that sort of person.

I was looking for the minimum coordination that keeps life easier, nothing 
more. There was no intention for huge regression tests before starting "all 
sorts of hacking on the head" even if I still don't like the idea of 
free-running commits there.

Maybe a different branch for "extensive" ongoing projects could keep a good 
partitioning, giving us back better tracking, reviewing and parallel working 
capabilities. A 'cleanup' branch could be the starting one (to be removed 
after merging on the head).
