If we take the action Remy recommends, we won't.  I'm +1 for this (it will certainly
reduce the effort of double-committing all the changes), if we're willing to accept
the fact that it will increase the time before a 4.0 production quality release is

The 4.1 branch was originally created because of a "feature freeze" on 4.0.  The
various proposals today are effectively to "unfreeze" the 4.0 branch, so that some
new functionality (already committed on the 4.1 branch) can get moved into 4.0
instead, along with the other proposed changes that would otherwise need to be posted
to both.

We can recreate the 4.1 branch at some future point when 4.0 is refrozen.
