The author of the article seemed to want to make a release branch so that
whatever hits the trunk is essentially a snapshot of a release.  I'm not
quite sure that is worth it if at the point there is a group of us dedicated
to making a release and fixing things that are broken.  I wasn't thinking
we'd need to restrict checkins to unstable around release time if we are
being selective about what changes get promoted to trunk.  But if that
doesn't work out, then we would probably need to have release branches.

Feature branches are certainly ok in anyone's whiteboard or in branches, but
I don't know if we need policy around it.
