Hi Vijay.

We're creating a branch in order to demonstrate that it's useful and that it does not negatively impact hackability or performance.

It hadn't occurred to me to view the goals of the WebKit project as applying only to trunk, and not to branches. I'd be interested in hearing from other WebKit engineers: Do you think that the goals of the WebKit project apply to trunk alone, or to branches as well?

Vijay, if we assume that WebKit's goals do not apply to this branch, what goals would you like to apply?
