Bill makes some good points... it seems that branching would simply be
"renaming" trunk. The good thing is that with svn this is cheap
and easy, but will it really do what we want? Also, the "gotta
backport this to yet another branch" issue is valid.

In other words, trunk is 2.1 anyway, so what does a branch provide?
I would say it's a perception advantage mostly.
