I believe wh-sandbox does not contain all of build-improvements as
evidenced by the recent experiment of Bill and Waldek.  It is hard for
me tell which is which because when the changes are merged to
wh-sandbox, the ChangeLog does not contain proper labels, which
changes are taken, which are left out, etc and the rationale.  Waldek
knows best all the details. 

Furthermore, in any sane development development environment, when you
create a branch B from a tree A, you regularly merge from A to B, not
to lose track.  And other branches are created as well from A, so it
is simpler to merge back to A to minimize conflicts, manual
resolutions etc.  That is why, for example I try to make sure
gdr-sandbox does not stay too far from build-improvements.  Anything
else tend to create unnecessary work -- I don't know for others, but I
don't enough time to spend solving problems I could avoid in the first
