Why not create a release branch?  That would free up the trunk for new work
and reduce the chance of new features creeping in.

I realize this is discussed briefly in PEP 101, but that PEP doesn't
give a rational for waiting until the final release to make a release branch.
It makes more sense to me to make the branch when features are frozen,
which means the beta.
