Opinion on branching/reversioning the game?

IIRC old nethack players often branch their own version of nethack, but that's never heard of nowadays.
What's your opinions and attitudes towards making a branch or a reversion of DCSS?

I think more branches and forks would be a good thing, to keep the dev team on our toes, and to serve as a testing ground for ideas too disruptive for us to want to try.

Several non-canonical branches are playable on dev.berotato.org and crawl.berotato.org, but the last major fork was crawl-light, which hasn't been updated for a few years.

Note the latest commit in Crawl-light was actually in May 2014, the github page says 2011 because the last commit in that repository was an import for a stone soup commit made in 2011.

Anyway yes agreed more Crawl forks would be a great thing.
