Well, I guess part of the question/problem is how easy is it to keep one
of the trees up to date?  We still haven't decided what to do for 2.5
yet (I'd like to for linux_2_4 and keep going w/ the _devel tree as a
2_5 tree, but that's just me probably.)  If Ted's tree is reasonably up
to date (or it'd be possible for myself/Paul to help keep it so), I
wouldn't be opposed to trying linuxppc_2_5 as a subtree of Ted's.

I don't think the crud is hurting much tho..  I'd rather keep history,
but I'm also not opposed to change. :)
