Well, I'm for holding back. Myself, I have decided to set up branches
more frequently, in order to do work I want to be done. Then, when the
branch is done, we can move the work to trunk.

If we used that approach more, we could have a shorter release cycle
because new features are already waiting on a branch to be merged
right after the latest branches off for a release.

This way, right after a release we already have something new and
exciting for a new release... (Which should be an encouragement to
'not post-pone' as we have been doing with 1.5 when we started
merge-tracking. We already had releasable material when it started...)

Anyway, +1 to post-poning ctypes and svnpatch, to be merged to trunk
right after branching 1.5.

bye,

Erik.
