Insofar as that means beating firmly about the head and neck any
utterance of the phrase "bound branch" in referring to "checkout", I
heartily agree.

I just don't think it CAN be.  Surely it can have a lot less sharp
edges, but cramming together the concepts of staying in sync and going
out of sync is just too hairy a process to be anything but the
previously mentioned "escape hatch".
