oh sure, that will be the ultimate state of things, sorry if I was unclear, the plan is to do both of these at the same time:
- merge Lion branch to trunk
- commit MountainLion sources to trunk (on top of what is currently the tip of the Lion branch)
the Lion sources included a big re-org of the source tree so that would need to happen on trunk regardless, merging the Lion branch is actually easier than re-doing that
