Ok, so the high-level plan is this:

* All main development (towards 0.12.x) continues on master.

* Developers can continue to develop features in their own feature
  branches, but are encouraged to frequently merge into master (as
  long as they don't break the build)

* 0.11.x releases *must* be protocol-compatible to 0.11.0. So once
  master is NOT protocol-compatible to 0.11.0, development for 0.11.x
  must continue in an 0.11-branch where we only cherry-pick those
  changes from master that preserve protocol-compatibility.

(I originally considered immediately creating the 0.11-branch, but
given that there will _likely_ be months of development _without_
breaking compatibility still, I figured this could wait. But if
someone wants to start the branch off from the 0.11 tag now, I won't
object either.)

And yeah, we should probably document this somewhere ;-).
