(I believe Bernhard just fears that somebody will reformat or refactor
the sources to a large degree. However I find that suitable for any person
that likes to push Skencil forward. On the other hand, if you make diffs
readable by Bernhard, he might read them and give his knowledge. So do what
you believe is best.)

People that want to check out 0.6.17 can still do this with svn
via the following tag:
If in the future, we need a new tag, we could still branch at that point
later. But currently Igor, you (and your folks) are the only developers,
so you should use the main branch in my view as this is the only official

My writing above is just a suggestion, it is up to you, if you like to work in
a branch, you can of course do so. Given that the old tags already are called
0.6.17 and so on, I would not call a working branch 0.6.18 right now, to avoid
possible confusion, but again, this is just a suggestion and you can do so,
if you like. :)
