I think that the way it was done with the 1.1.3 -> 1.2 branching
was perfect and I see no reason to change it.

I vote for branching as before. For those who don't wnat to
worry about 1.2 anymore, they will see no change at all.
And, no matter what we think right now, 2.0 will grow out of
1.2 code... does anyone really foresee a total rewrite of the
code from scratch? I don't.
