It appears that things work better than I had expected, at least on 10.6.8. While the script does not work on Mac OS, pulling the changes appears to work just fine. As well, it is possible to switch between branches that do and don't have the changes made and undo the changes with a 'git reset --hard HEAD^'. The limitation in the script, AFAIK, is with 'git mv' and this has been documented elsewhere.

So, pulling the changes to a Mac works fine, everything compiles and the test suite runs as expected.
