I was hoping that only bug fixes would go into the branch and that each 
release candidate would just roll up those bug fixes. The release 
candidates would be snapshots of the branch at the time the candidates

I need to start compiling this list. Fortunately, Kathey is already 
forging ahead, raising the priority of suspect bugs. I have been putting 
off this task until we reach consensus about the date for branching.
