If you think it's needed and if Andreas wants to help you - why not. However
I think it is a very very small task to apply a patch locally. I wouldn't
like it if I had to pick out all the diffs manually.

So in case we start with such a branch: Please don't stop attaching patches
here :-)

HEAD is different in SVN. HEAD is "trunk" now. Additionally, every branch
has its own HEAD which reflects the latest version of this branch.

So what we used to call TYPO3_4-0 is now called the "HEAD revision of
TYPO3_4-0" (still the same in some way of course).

But what we used to call HEAD is now called "HEAD of trunk".

Hope this clarifies.
