Btw, it's exactly this sort of confusion that I wanted to avoid by using a
3-branch scheme (current release target, next minor, next major).

The 2-branch scheme we have now makes this sort of confusion a regular part of
ongoing development, because we'll always encounter the case where a fix on
'master' ends up becoming part of the next release, ahead of whichever version
master was marked as at the time the bug was fixed.
