I think that this need to stay flexible on this one.  We have to
remember that your cutting the x.y branch only because you don't want
to hold folks back from doing commit that should make it into the next
x.y+1 release.

So I could see a case where the n.y branch is cut weeks or months
before the finally release process kicks in which causes the x.y.0
branch to be created.  It could be you have several committers working
on new features aimed at the x.y+1 branch but the x.y still need to go
though a few weeks of bug fixing before you start the release process.
