Yes, we need to look at the entire issue of moving annotations into the
correct nodes, and what information in the annotations are
non-overalpping, etc.  all that at once.  Doesn't that sound like fun?

It seems like it might be best done post-merge with mainline due to the
conflicts and stuff it would cause when trying to do reverse merges to
the branch... I susp[ect thats half the reason it was done this way in
the first place :-).  

We also need to look at the memory consuption and whats actually in
those nodes right now.
