Because everyone is accustomed to the real 3.0 development
going on in SAMBA_3_0. Since SAMBA_4_0 has its own branch,
trunk is basically abandoned. I don't believe there is any
need for us to have to check into 2 branches with every
change to SAMBA_3_0.

Why are we building trunk in the build farm anyways?
trunk and SAMBA_3_0 are always a copy of each other
except for a few weeks before release.
But it seems that Coverity only checks trunk. This is
a mess. We are creating twice as much work per checkin
for ourselves. We lose history when we cut over.
let's don't be a slave to tools. We should be to
adapt our development ot fit our needs and replace
tools when needed.
