That sounds like a good idea, but the typical death of our release
candidates was by regressions more than a month old rather than
last-minute work done before the release candidate.  Our "stable branch"
basically is the last development release.

So while this sounds eminently reasonable, it does not seem to
significantly help with out current situation.
