The upstream tag is abused enough (especially by bug submitters) that it is
practically useless at this point.

If I am in the process of completing some medium-to-large-scale
restructuring or something in my working directory, and someone reports a
bug with severity <= normal, I just merge in the fix and don't waste time
with multiple trees or anything else.  I would only bother with that sort of
thing for an important bug.  Branching, especially, is overkill for nearly
all situations, and a maintenance headache.
