IMO the append_branch() is PITA since ever (ok, it is better since
branch routes) - so a cleanup is a good idea.
From flexibility point of view having the append_branch manually is a
good idea - although it of course will confuse beginners.
IIRC there were also differences between manual and automatic (e.g.
dispatcher) regarding other branch parameters which were not copied
(duri, send_socket, bflags ...) - this should be reviewed too.
