I should also say I'm opposed to turning off all the bots without
actually removing the code. That means all developers have to make
changes "in the dark" or someone will be responsible for fixing all
the issues before release. Making the branch allows us to extend the
life of WebKit 1 without bothering the rest of the WebKit community.
