	We could commit a huge warning to the end of configure.in in there that
prints out:

	"You are using the wrong branch, obsolete since 2010"

	Sure - or we could do that. Are packagers still using build ? there is
no particular git-ness about either approach. It is easy to create a
libreoffice-3-5 branch from master there [ if it even works ], and then
just delete everything in master.
