I do not know enough about how git will merge this to comment 'too' much
about this.  The reason I listed it this way, is that it already IS in
bleeding, although with wrong name.  Thus, it would be trivial to get
bleeding as it stands updated. 

However if bleeding is simply a set of patches 'OFF' of the magnum-jumbo
branch, then yes, I think you are right, and we should change the
magnum-jumbo branch, and then the bleed would simply contain fewer changes.
