Sure.  Kill branches as soon as possible so we don't need a process
for dealing with them.

Let me take a bit of pressure out of this.

Every committer has taken the responsibility to merge or not merge
changes into the branch on him/herself.  A process where the
(volunteer) release manager had to approve each merge simply wouldn't
scale IMHO.

Also note that the Ant PMC is responible for the releases, not the
release manager.

I know that you know that and didn't mean to imply anything else (in
particular I deliberately took the quote out of context), just wanted
to stress my POV again.
