Yup. That way if we find a bug in the trunk code during that week, we
can fix it in the release branch (assuming it's present in the release
branch, i.e., not introduced very recently on the trunk).

In other words, this Wednesday, we do pick the "blessed" release
revision for 0.34, and make the release branch. But then we let it
sit there for a while, so that by the time we *do* release it, there
is no code in it which has not been exposed for at least a week.
