Yeah, fair enough about per-developer branch would only confuse patch
applying more.

Applying in a local branch does not mean you close the patch immediately.
You close them when the branch gets committed to master. Differencial
revisions will be closed because of "Differnecial Revision: FOO" mention,
for patch tracker think we can make it so "Patch TXXX" also closes tasks
(that we can/should do anyway i think).

But i'm still fine with just "staging-" branches, would help organizing
work with the patch tracker a bit more. But what's your opinion about
staging- branch for non-tracker patches (like regular development things)?
