Personally, I'd prefer to see development branches off the mainline
than dumping stuff into mainline that doesn't really belong there.
I don't think there's been any "official policy" issued either way;
but if core wants to vote on it, that's how I'd vote.

A fair point.  Other projects than this would likely already have
a CVS branch going for the-next-version.  Historically we've not
done that, so as to avoid having to double-patch bug fixes into
two separate branches.  But this release cycle is going so darn
slow that I'm half inclined to agree that making a 7.3 branch now
would be better.

[ Or, we could get off our collective rears and get 7.2 out the
door.  Hiroshi is not at fault, but some of us on this side of
the Pacific are ... ]
