We usually do it, development on the trunk and each release gets its own
maintenance branch. Anyway, sometimes a developer is allowed to start an
"experimental" branch to test some new ideas - something it looks very
difficult to do on the trunk.
And this time I had to experiment with some improvements that required
radical changes, while other developers should have been able to work on the
trunk as usual - it wasn't know beforehand if the experiment would have been
successful or not :-)

Ok, it worked. The mergepoint is not an issue, the experimental branch is
"dead" now, and will be used no longer.
