The point is that we do not need another branch - the engine issue can 
be handled in the trunk via a compile-time switch, or, as has been 
suggested, even a run-time switch. Personally, I think that the 
suggestion of a run-time switch with dynamically loaded code is rather 
over the top to solve an issue as simple as this. Even with a 
compile-time switch it will be trivial to create a GPL-only 
distribution without CDraw if desired.
