of course it is

if it's *just* unit tests, then no, put them in the main repo.  if
you're adding new code not used by the main core, again: put them in
the main repo.

however if you need to *modify* something used in the main core (such
as MultiCompUnit) then yes, definitely, create a branch so we can take
a look, first.

i really do not like branches because they have caused such
significant loss of work ("oh it's in a branch") and isolation of
developers that i am massively against them.

however in this *one* case - code freeze - there is a clear and
important reason for using them.
