Yes, but that is fine.  It is normal process for branches to sync with
what they branched from even when they are going to backport.  In
fact, that should be the procedure for unconfusing backport.

The recent discussions with Tim, and the various tentative of
recreating new "Silvers" have made me less sympathetic to recreate yet
another silver.  Let's stick to a single point of reference.

We need an "upgraded" silver branch for sure.  However, we do have
severe communication problems. 

Let's upgrade build-improvements with backports from wh-sandbox.

I would really like to the fixes Waldek implemented to the Axiom
community.  Today is already overbooked for me [yeah, spring break was
over before it started].  But, tomorrow might be better.
