You know what? I think you are right and I goofed. I was thinking: "what 
if feature A and feature B both edit the same file?".

But thinking about it a little more, it doesn't matter. On the second 
rsync command, all the changes in feature A are effectively deleted and 
replaced by those in feature B. Is that right? So there's no conflict. 
The test page simply switches from one branch to another.

Thanks! It looks like I was making this whole thing a lot harder than it 
needed to be. Thanks for the help.
