Yes, I assume that we'd branch and park 5 at some point, putting it into 
maintenance, and then just if there is a bug, deal with them on case by 
case back into main tree.

But that's just version of SE mainline. There also is The Logging Topic 
That Will Not Die, as well as capabilities and profiles for ME (if 
someone wanted to do so), but I know almost zero about how that works in 
real life.
