Conflict inside derivable.slate

Probably what I did was to unpull so I could amend-record and re-push,  
and you happened to pull at the time when the bad copy was in the  

I would suggest in the future to follow the alpha repository, as our  
current policy is to push changes to main and use that for  
synchronizing or for unstable work, and then we update alpha from main  
once it reaches the ability to bootstrap correctly. Basically, we  
reserve the right to do chaotic things in main since we're working on  
the core often enough.

I will try to avoid unpulling like that in the future, but I'm not  
going to guarantee anything. Just use alpha.
