This seems to be a bigger risk way back in the days of CVS. With how easy
it is to create new branches, and the fact that we have an amber11 branch, I
think makes it easier to create consistent patches from a static code base,
as long as changes that are NOT turned into patches are not added to that
tree. That being said, I don't want to add anything to the amber11 tree
that will NOT turn into a bug fix, so should I unstage and discard the fix
that I made to my local amber11 tree rather than pushing it?

They're fixed in my local copy, but it's in the midst of other, incomplete,
changes I have. I'll upload everything when I'm done(ish) and it's working.
