We should never just pick an MMN and stick with it.  When the source code
is ready, that will happen automatically.

As for people not being willing to accept the MMN issue as a reason to
destabilize the tree, you're right, I'm not.  We aren't a commercial
venture.  We do what is right, because it is the right thing to do.

I don't really care when you commit new code, but don't try to commit it
in the last few days/hours of a release, and then pretend that the release
is still GA quality.  If you want to add brand new code (as opposed to a
small bug fix) at the the of the release, then go ahead and add it, but
make the release a beta or alpha.  This is why we went to the new system.
