If there's no further discussion or action taken, it would seem that 
we're choosing the option number 2 that I described in my previous 
e-mail. Just to recap:

1. Merge 0.6.1-type changes back to trunk so trunk gets the new 
functionality, but *still do the release from the 0.6 branch.* This 
would mean that trunk can still have significant changes made to it, and 
QA is done to a branch that has already been stabilized. Major dev work 
can still be done on trunk.

2. Don't touch trunk after major releases (Like Nigel's Les Paul), since 
we may have to base point releases on the state of trunk right after the 
release. All new development and non-point-release bugfixes would have 
to go in private branches. Those branches would have to be kept in sync 
with the trunk, and stuff in them would be selectively merged to trunk 
when they're going into a release.

To quote our geek forefathers, "If you choose not to decide / You still 
have made a choice." :)

There is some major refactoring associated with some of my bugs (ex. 
8491, 7767, 8613), and I'm trying to think ahead to avoid manual 
conflict resolutions later.
