I believe since the core changed, the preferences need to use another

I'm against branching

Don't forget there is still a lot of work to do before a release, so I
believe 'not too distant' is a lot of time, so broken code can remain
in trunk/ (the things you are screaming for have been committed in the
past 3 days, not that much).

It is a good intention, but I believe a wrong method to branch now.
