I am going to be offline today, so wanted to get at least one comment in.

I am not going to object if we want to release 1.6, but I'll point out
the feature we want to put in a branch is not even 100% complete (does
not support Windows or OSX yet). For our immediate needs, Unix is the
greatest pain. I think it is better to stick to a date for 1.6 as
planned and let the release train leave the station whether everything
people wanted is ready or not. If we branch now, for a lot of us that
put all our efforts into 1.5 stabilization, which lasted through the
1.5.1 release, we will not have had any time to even think about what
we wanted for 1.6, let alone code it.

Having a branch has virtually no impact on the project or its release
schedule, and as was stated privately, if no one has an interest in
the work, then we can just do the branch privately.
