I agree. Especially now that there we've had some good contributions and
improvements that, while prompted by the x86_64 changes, aren't directly

I think the question to be answered is how development should proceed
after the merge of the runtime and Basis Library. I suspect that the
changes to the compiler proper will take some time; certainly, I found it
convenient to checkpoint my progress with the runtime and Basis Library by
committing changes that left the branch in a broken state. So, if we
merge and then continue development on both HEAD and the x86_64 branch,
we'll still be tracking changes (though, I don't think that the compiler
proper changes will require as extensive refactoring as the runtime and
Basis Library, so tracking changes shouldn't be that difficult).
