No problem at all, I'll just revert them and it will propagate down to
other's branches. We could either leave it in bleeding-jumbo (fairly
logical unless we want to run that one during the contest), or revert it
from there too and create a testing-jumbo. This might be "bleeding-jumbo
plus experimental stuff" whereas bleeding-jumbo is supposed to be
exactly the same as magnum-jumbo but rebased upon latest CVS.
