I'm as eager to get 1.7.0 out the door as anybody else, and look
forward to the "zero blocking issues" / "branch point" milestone.
Given the fact that we seem to be taking a
two-steps-forward-one-step-back toward that milestone, I've been
mulling the idea of waiting just a few days after the issue tracker is
cleared out before branching, just because that's when stuff seems to
come out of the woodwork. Though, if folks respond to your pleas
below, that could satisfy my concerns.

Agreed (though, I've limited myself to release scripts these days, anyway).
