I don't think we are running away from them. I certainly hope not.
There are competing demands (like everything)
1. We want to ship 4.5
2. We want to have new features being developed
3. We want to fix quality issues
4. We want to fix process issues

Each of those is at odds with each other. They are also hard problems,
and frankly most of them are as much a cultural problem as a technical
problem.

We are saying that #2 forced us to fork 4.5 into a different branch.
Master and 4.5 are now diverging, and we want to #1 to happen. 1 & 2
are incompatible on the same branch, but their competition is keeping
3 and 4 at bay.

That doesn't mean we shouldn't change, but you can only pull in so
many directions without things coming apart.
