[CCC DEV] kroc-1.5 vs. master: battle

Hi all,

I sat down the other evening with the intention of pulling things from kroc's
'master' (unstable) branch into the 'kroc-1.5' (stable) branch.  However,
there's a *lot* and it's not clear to me whether it's all sensible (the earliest
change looks like 2005/2008 which seems a bit old!).  There are probably things
committed in kroc-1.5 that aren't in master, but the log this way isn't clear.
The way svn and Git merge branches seems to be different, so crudely pulling
in changes from one to the other is, I suspect, likely to result in a horrid mess.

As the 'master' branch is pretty stable (as far as I know), any objections if
we rename the kroc-1.5 branch (to something like kroc-1.5-stable-old) and
re-branch 'master' to 'kroc-1.5'?  [once that's in place, we can cherry-pick
(or similar) changes that were made on kroc-1.5[-stable-old] that should be
kept, if there are any].
