This sounds really, really good.

So, for my own clarification, once 1.5.x becomes "blessed" into 1.6.x,
what happens in CVS? Will there still be 2 branches, one stable and
one unstable? Or will a third branch, 1.9.x, start happening at that
point? Or later, when 1.7.x is starting to look like 1.8.x?

Dazed and confused,
