Steve Cameron has a patch that does that (although he spells it ".trunk"
rather than "TRUNK"):
Now that we have different branches for development and release,
do you see any chance that this will be committed to the dev
branch anytime soon?

Kind regards

I haven't worked on that patch in a long time, unfortunately.
(no internet access at home anymore, which I admit
is somewhat ridiculous.)

There is a problem with the ".origin" feature and vendor branches (it doesn't work on vendor branches.)
I don't recall the exact details, or know how hard
it would be to fix it to work on vendor branches.

Also unfortunate, I combined the two features,
".trunk" and ".origin" into one patch, because
it was too hard to keep them separate.

I would be surprised if the sanity.sh part of the
patch still applies cleanly, as this was always prone to
throwing rejects every time somebody added a new test...
though it might not be too hard to fix.

Feel free to ask me anything about the patch, or
take it over, if any of you want to, since I don't have
much time to work on CVS anymore.

If anybody has time to clean this up and fix the bugs, this would be nice to see on the feature branch now that we have one.
