i'm responding to the head of this thread because i haven't read
the rest of it yet.. so, as usual, my comments may be stale.

this works for me, except for some of the details -- like the
version nomenclature.

let's get away from the term 'branch', and use something less
technically overloaded.  i propose 'stream'.

i'd like to combine this with the leap-frogging stable/development
stream idea.  for stake-in-the-ground and pr reasons, i'd suggest
taking whatever we want to start this stable stream with and
giving it a new number, such as 2.1.  (i suspect i'm anticipating
firstbill's probably-already-posted comment on this..)  then rename
head to 2.2 and that's where development continues.  2.0 as such
dries up and blows away.  when we repeat with a new stable stream,
the 2.2 head gets snapshot as 2.3, head becomes 2.4, and 2.2 vanishes.

whew, that's a load off the top of my head.. :-)
