We already have the branch for config admin and if we think that we need
another R6 based release of SCR we can create the branch on demand like
we did with config admin.
I started with these two projects in a branch and at one point we have
to merge the branch into trunk. I thought that now is the time as I
didn't expect another release before R7 will be out. Might be wrong...
In any case, creating that branch is easy. Just shout and it will be done.
