I agree with you about lower levels of project activity at that point; my
own selfish concern is about internal staffing levels for handling the new
branch, on what for us is the first day back from the holidays.  But as I
said it's not a strong objection, we can make sure to capture the branch
at the correct revision even if we don't do it exactly in the moment, and 
you make a reasonable argument for going with the earlier date.  I don't 
want to stand in the way here.
