Since every TLA is overloaded already, I'd prefer more explicit names such
as org.gnu.emacs.dvc{,.stephe}.  It is quite easy to rename a branch before
you publish it, i.e.

mtn db execute "UPDATE revision_certs SET value = 'org.gnu.emacs.dvc'
WHERE name='branch' AND value LIKE 'dvc.main%'"

No, once published and replicated across several databases, branch names
never disappear and must be universally unique; that's perhaps the biggest
problem with monotone.
