Please do it in the branch. Otherwise people who want to build 0.95beta 
from the sources will stumble upon this issue and may be confused. 
Morevover it will be very easy to merge the changes back to the Trunk 
thanks to svnmerge. While if we have to setup svnmerge also on the 
branch the two won’t play very well together. I can take care of the 
merges back to Trunk. Thanks!

Speaking of that: while the branch is alive, please all commit to the 
branch the fixes that you want to appear in the 0.95 release. Commit in 
the trunk only the changes that mustn’t be in 0.95. This will ease the 
merging process.

Thanks,
Vincent
