The only "advantage" to this idea is it seems to try to enforce putting
features in stable, but thats stupid. At the end you still have two
branches, you can call whichever one trunk you want, it doesn't really
matter. if someone doesn't want to do the work to backport something to
stable, they just aren't going to do it. i'm waiting for the proposal that
adds some "policy" about this, that would be very lucene-like.

and for any feature where someone is willing to do the work for it to be in
stable or unstable, its gonna have to be committed twice, by someone,
