I think this going to be scary because packages are distributed across
multiple branches, so names would end up getting namespaced. I think
that MELPA has it right here -- packages should be in different repos,
master is trunk, last tag is release. This could be expanded to support
multiple releases if package.el supported multiple versions of Emacs.
