pkgsrc-wip is not intended for use with a pkgsrc branch; it is *only*
intended for use with pkgsrc-current.
To make pkgsrc-wip compatible with branches, either pkgsrc-wip would
have to be branched (yuck), or pkgsrc-wip would require special hacks
for compatibility that would be invalid once the package was moved to
main pkgsrc (double yuck).
