Like I had stated early on while I was working on those experimental
changes, git was slowing me down, so I was avoiding it while doing
rapid releases.  All of that was experiment, and not intended to go
into unstable without more thought/consideration.  In the meantime
unstable was maintained concurrently and kept up to date in git.

Plus the archive acts as a (coarse) vcs anyway.

Sometimes git just gets in the way, so not using it at times makes
sense to me, but I would only ever consider doing that in
