Along those lines you (or your to be branching expert) should probably take
a look at Brad Appleton's "Assembling Configuration Management Environments"
pages[1] (and books). He has a section specifically on branching techniques
and reasoning[2], which I have found useful in the past.  I thought I had
seen some user feed back in some sections where individuals noted how they
had used the pattern under various version control tools, and how it worked
for them.
