I was mostly just thinking about the range of options (in general)
between taking the position that 1.8 should only allow bugfixes, and
that any new development should go into 1.10, and taking a more
liberal position as (in part) a way to release new features sooner (at
least those that don't break backward compatibility).  Of course in
the former case, there would be more pressure for a earlier 1.10

Of course each approach has its advantages and disadvantages, both
from the developer's perspective, and the user's perspective.
