Just see my changelog and then see if you want to give it a try.

Cornelius is free to merge, and sometimes I ask him to merge; usually,
not all parts go in. My versions are sometimes fixes of his versions,
sometimes more experimental with structural changes, sometimes both.

(if your mail has no more lines after this part, but is followed by a
broken mail, your MTA or mailer are broken)

 From time to time, Cornelius merges some of my patches in, so
sometimes, the trees are more in sync, sometimes less.

If or when the branches are merged, is decided based on the quality, but
is not a development goal, though I try to keep my version fully
compatible (but not bug-to-bug compatible ;) with Cornelius' version.
This is no contest, and it's not a spin-off or derivative (like
leafnode+ is) - these are just two variants of leafnode while I want to
keep my version close enough to the "official" one and have the
intention of eventually getting leafnode right. It (both trees) still
has so many bugs that users don't see, but which may bite really hard if
actually triggered. :-(
