That would be hairy :-). Instead it is essentially a package commit. A
snapshot is created, modified and then committed. So it gets its own
distinct UUID, version number and time stamp. And of course now it gets a
branched package name. So these packages can safely coexist with their
originals on trunk. The only bug right now is that new methods end up
uncategorized and that causes a few tests to fail. Frank's CI server may
encourage me to fix this soon ;-).
