My concern is that CollabNet folks have said that they are
contemplating switching their official 1.5 binaries to include these
features and make them available to the world. (Regardless of
whatever we do, CollabNet *will* make these binaries available to
their paying customers in some fashion.)

So, instead of creating confusion by having feature disparity between
in-the-wild 1.5.x releases, I'd prefer that we just issue a 1.6
release that has those same features to minimize confusion. I dislike
folks using our name and adding features that we don't have in the
same release and still calling it "Subversion". -- justin
