Actually, the branches *can't* be identical, in practically every
nontrivial case, because (if nothing else) the %changelog will diverge.
If you're copying log entries into a branch where those changes did not
actually happen, you are not doing the right thing.

As Matt said, this sort of difference shouldn't hurt the ability to
merge or cherrypick diffs from one branch to another.
