There's another option, too, that I just thought of. svn copy the
trunk into tags/ Flip the beta flag, roll the beta
distributions. No other changes go into this copy of the trunk.

When the time comes, branch the new branch off the trunk, and
do any reverse merging as necessary.

SVN copies are cheap, we should take advantage of that.
