Hello Michael,

I'm the one to blame. The reuse branch does exist, although I haven't 
touched it for almost a year now being busy writing things up for my 
phd. It works, but there is no manual. You can test it if you want to. 
And I'd be happy if you did (I'm always on the look for interesting 
benchmarks), so if you need any help.. I'd be happy to assist you.

And yes, my intention is to integrate it with the main trunk,... some 
sunny day.
