Yes I did. Sorry about that.

I just did a test merge and there was one file that was completely
removed and one file with had changes a line or two above where my code
changed. So nothing too difficult to result.

I don't really mind either way. But keeping them all in one tree makes
them easier to keep track of, and allows me to do things like see if
