Because there always seems to be one more person saying "ooh ooh wait for
this one last thing" and the group is too afraid to do a dead-end branch.

I completely agree. Let's tag a candidate at the last known point before
the poll changes and test that. If there are showstopper problems in
that which have simple fixes, then we branch and patch with no intention
of using CVS to merge back to head (we can do it manually later). Once
it's good we tag for the final release and roll. Unfortunately I'm just
blowing hot air since I don't have time to volunteer to do this myself
(wish I did :).
