I disagree. Rolling a release takes a non-trivial amount of time and
effort, and expecting people to create, test, and release tarballs from
multiple branches at a time seems like a bit much at this point. Anyone
who wants to test the trunk version is free to check it out, and any
'safe' bug fixes will likely be merged into the branch anyway.

Also, I'd much rather have our users testing what will become version
1.0, so we can find problems there, than have them testing the
development version.

So yeah, at this point I'd vote to hold off on releases from the trunk
while we're trying to stabalize 1.0 on the branch.
