please correct me if i'm wrong, but given this approach, why ever  
have HEAD at all?

let's say you permanently wipe the files in HEAD except for the  
README.  couldn't you just create the DRUPAL-6 branch directly from  
the latest DRUPAL-5 work?  it doesn't seem like HEAD ever needs to  
exist in this model, except as a placeholder for the README.

am i off base??
