If it were a complete branch of base, anyone could just check it out,
compile it, and play with it. When registry2.0 is just a directory by
itself like that, though, it requires more work: at least checking
out base, then checking out (or exporting) registry2.0 into the
correct place inside it. Maybe more changes; I don't know, since I
don't really know how base works. If it were all codified into a
branch, I wouldn't need to know. I'd just check it out and use it.
