I prefer the current approach.  
New features can wait a bit.  
Anyone working on new stuff should
Probably be focused on bug reports
right now.  We're not that far away from
having Py2.4 done anyway.

Adding a branch would make it a tiny bit
more difficult to fix bugs.  This is doubly
true for non-developers who want to submit patches.

Also, branching creates extra work because at
some point the bug fixes and new features would
need to be merged.
