In software speak taking a snapshot and modifying it in two places
is called branching.

Have you ever tried to merge branches to get a result with best of 
both worlds? In Software its easy as long as not both branches modify
the same line of code. In OSM Speak - how do you merge? When there
are 2 modifications - which one is the one to take? "Last write wins"?
