Should it not be:

BRANCHES=all-branch-statuses ./cr-for-branches . -w ./cr-maintjobs ''
which ends up calling
./cr-maintjobs all-branch-status
which in turn calls (from a "case $1") the new mg- from this patch?

Or maybe we rename it to mj- (for maintjob) and have cr-maintjobs call

Would using ~osstest/daemons-testing.git for this be an intolerable
