It's preference more than anything else.  Jeremy likes to view
trunk and SAMBA_3_0 as separate branches.  I prefer to check
in identical patches as one commit.

You mean a viewing a single patch and figuring out which branches
it was applied to ?  That's one reason why I like to commit to
multiple branches at once.  A patch is contained in a single
revision number which I can verify against different branches.
But it only works as long as you follow the convention.
