Sounds more like a suggestion for a sooner 1.6, rather than an objection
to the branch (i.e., make the need for the branch go away).

I'm just not sure that "sooner 1.6" has convinced enough people. We had
a six-month plan for such releases, and releasing 1.6 so soon on the
heels of 1.5 could cause some distress among the users. "Do I need to
upgrade?" "What? I thought they just released 1.5?" Etc.
