one reason we would wait, is cause there are no ongoing efforts. at 
least none that are documented, and as Mark said two months ago,
"I don't see a need for a separate 6.0.x and 6.1.x development at this 
point. I have yet to see a convincing technical argument that there is 
something sufficiently new and/or different to justify this overhead."

we still haven't documented what this "ongoing effort would be" nor have 
we agreed on it.
 From what it sounds like right now, and the technical argument and the 
reason to get a trunk, would be to have more liberty adding in fixes and 
patches,and then have an easier way to propose it back to be a fix in 6.0.
