Yes. It's not good for much yet. Just adding half-finished stuff makes
the code quality decrease.

Or, differently asked: Is there any benefit if we merge before it is
done? Merging when it is done is somewhat the purpose of going through
this concept of merging instead of just committing to a single tree.

Well, the problem is missing momentum - and that does not come from
merging. There was momentum when v1 was switched to v2.
