Expanding on what I said on private@ as I see no reason for it not to
be part of the public discussion...

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.
There is enough work to do to maintain 4.1.x, 5.0.x (which we aren't
doing a great job of and I am several months past my promise to do a
security release for 5.0.x), 5.5.x and 6.0.x without adding yet an
other branch.

Simply, trunk should never have been called trunk, it is a branch. It
should be moved to 6.0.x/branches/whatever

In terms of moving forward, merge the changes in 'trunk' to 6.0.x.
Ideally this should be done commit by commit or groups of related
commits so we can discuss each of the additions if necessary. If any
attract a veto or are viewed as too experimental etc they can stay in
6.0.x/branches/whatever until the issues are resolved or that feature
is abandoned. My expectation is that 99% of what is in /trunk can move
to 6.0.x/trunk with little or no debate.
