What CollabNet wants is a 1.5 with one new feature set in it - which
implies branching from 1.5.x. If we did that and called it 1.6, it
would be completely different from how releases have ever been done
before. I don't think I'm in favor.

However, if all you mean is to do a regular 1.6 release by branching
trunk to 1.6.x soonish, that's a different matter. That seems OK, so
long as it doesn't imply shortening the serious-bugs-and-security-fixes
support window of 1.4.x too drastically.
