I see no problem releasing alphas from trunk. What's the issue? We
have version control history and tags and whatnot. If we create a
1.7.0-alpha1 tag from trunk... we still have all the data for what
went *into* that alpha release.

It seems that you'd just copy to the tag, adjust the svn_version.h
file, and roll a tarball.

I don't see us patching alphas, so a branch doesn't seem appropriate.
If we want another alpha, then we just cut from trunk again. I don't
think we should branch until we believe we're ready; otherwise, the
branch could sit there relatively idle.

I've been looking into database integrity, though I think we're in
good shape. I'm not really sure what some of the other blockers may
be; need to do some looking at our various ### markers.

There are, of course, bugs and XFail tests and whatnot.
