I meant the question of "compatibility" a bit as rhetorical although your answer was good for those who don't understand the issue at hand.

My point was actually that the two branches have already started breaking away from each other. Some kind of "branch recognision" can then easily end up as a waste of time and energy since it can actually become easier to maintain two separate branches of an application rather than filling the code with all sorts of branch checking to turn a host of features on and off.
