In general, relying on branch=None to magically translate to the
"normal" branch (trunk on svn, master on git, default on hg) is
fraught with peril, because things like schedulers and ChangeFilters
don't have a clue about the particulars of VC engines.  So we're
trying to get to the point of always producing a branch name, and just
dealing with it explicitly.  So branch="default" is a best practice

I'm not sure I can tell what or how the version bump broke this for
you, but if it's fixed, it's fixed..
