If we need to issue a patch release, we'll use a branch.  That seems
the only reasonable approach.

The tree will be open for checkins as soon as 2.0 is released (tonight
is looking good!), but I hope the people exercise some restraint and
discuss their plans for significant checkins on the python-dev list

A lot of things should probably be discussed in the form of PEPs too!
